Beside the Seaside, Beside the Sea!

Beside the Seaside, Beside the Sea!

Reception, Year 1 and 2 had a wonderful day on our traditional seaside trip to Southport. The sun was shining and the children were smiling from start to finish. 

As part of Reception’s topic, they explored a range of transport in Southport and on the way. We travelled by coach and saw light aircraft, lots of boats, the lifeboat vehicle and a train on the pier. The children also stood on the paddle board the lifeguards use. 

Year 1 enjoyed exploring what you can find at the seaside and paddling in the Irish Sea. The children found a crab and collected a range of shells, made traditional sand castles and played lots of games. 

Before our trip, Year 2 researched facts about Southport and the seaside and what a traditional trip to the beach entails. They discovered that the pier is the longest pier in the UK. They also enjoyed having a look at the Victorian slot machines in the arcade. 

All the children enjoyed an ice cream on the pier and a train ride back to the coach.
