Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!

Steve, from Partake Theatre, led fantastic workshops with all our Year 1 classes using sound effects, drama and movement to teach us about the past. Our time-travelling adventures began with a steam train ride to the seaside, where we could hear the seagulls and imagined what it would feel like to fly like them. We walked along the promenade, saying "Good Morning" and "how do you do?" and bought a penny lick (an ice-cream to you and me!)

       

After eating our sandwiches on the beach and building sandcastles we stepped into a bathing hut to change into our swim suits and jumped into the sea for a swim! Then magically we found ourselves under the water, swimming like fishes.

    

We ended our day with a ride on the carousel and listened to the brass band. Then back onto the steam train for the journey home. What an exciting and tiring trip!
