Autumn 2 – week 1

Our topic day this week was focused on History. We have been looking at the history of Seaside Holidays, comparing seaside holidays now to what they would have been like 100 years ago.

The children were very taken by the thought of a ‘bathing machine’ the beach hut style carriage that people got dressed inside and were then wheeled out so they could lower themselves straight into the water!

We have been looking a historic photos and linking them to their attached historical statement. We also ordered photos and added them to a timeline.

The children voted for which seaside holiday they would prefer to go on, a seaside holiday in the present day or a seaside holiday 100 years ago.
