On Friday 14th June, Year 2 went to Weston. We had to make an early start and get to school by 7.30am! Then, we set out by coach and arrived at the seaside by 10.00am. Some of us have never been to the seaside before, so it was lovely to see the beach, promenade and pier. The tide was in, so we even caught a glimpse of the waves rolling into shore!
When we got off the coach, we were very busy making sandcastles with our buckets and spades. The most exciting part of our visit was having a donkey ride along the beach. After that, we played beach games and sat on the sand to enjoy our lunch. Later on in the day, we enjoyed eating icecream and buying souvenirs at the gift shop.
We were so lucky that it wasn’t windy, like the year before! In fact, the sun came out for us and it was warm. We had a memorable day.
Before the holiday Year 3 visited Birmingham city centre. We set out to Hall Green train station before alighting at Birmingham Moor Street. We visited the outside of Selfridges, the Bull, Victoria Square, Chamberlain Square and Brindley Place to name but a few locations. Whilst we were there we completed sketches of the various Birmingham landmarks present in the City Centre.
As well as that we also completed a pedestrian count and traffic survey. We used the data to compare the similarities and differences to Hall Green. We were lucky it didn’t rain as we were outside all day! The children listened carefully, behaved impeccably and were exhausted by the time we returned to school. They thoroughly enjoyed seeing the landmarks, many of which were for the first time.
