KS1 were very lucky this week to take a trip to the seaside AND travel back in time!!
Each class was led in a fun filled interactive drama workshop led by Liz from Teach it Through Drama.
She told us about some of the things that would have been seen in Victorian times if you visited the seaside. We looked at some of the bathing costumes that people may have worn and we were entertained by a fun Punch and Judy show!
Then we closed our eyes and were transported back to Victorian times, where we were poor children who were being treated to a trip to the seaside for the very first time.
We travelled on a steam train and made lots of funny train noises by repeating phrases like ‘Coffee ……coffee …….’, ‘fish and chips…..fish and chips’ over and over again.
When we go to the seaside we walked along the prom, breathing in the bracing sea air and curtseying and bowing at the very important people that we passed.
Then we worked as groups to make sandcastles which were topped with a flag!
Then we found out about some of the seaside entertainment that could be found in Victorian times and in our groups created a freeze frame of the photograph. Liz took photographs of us using her Victorian camera and then we brought our freeze frames to life.
It was nearly time to leave the seaside but we just had time for an ice cream and a paddle in the sea!
Thank you Liz for a lovely day – we all had a fantastic time at the seaside.
