What an amazing end to a fantastic year as Year 2, as we ventured to Blackpool to explore life by the sea. Mrs. Warburton, a volunteer at the Life Boat Centre kindly offered her time to talk to the children about the history of the RNLI as well as teach the children the importance of keeping SAFE near water. Some of the children even got to dress up as a life guard. All the teachers were so impressed by the children’s questioning and positive attitude when learning about the dangers at sea and what to do in an emergency. Sadly, this year we didn’t get to see how rock is being made but the children loved their ice-cream!
Whilst on the beach, the children loved building sandcastles and playing in the sand. The highlight of the day was the seagull invasion. In fact, Miss Drury’s whole sandwich was stolen by those pesky seagulls! Oak class were able to paddle in the sea, which was a wonderful experience for our children. We even created a video on why we should visit Blackpool. On Sunday 28th July, if you would like a family day out there is a free family event at the RNLI Central Pier, which is well worth a visit.
What a fantastic end to a fabulous year.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents for their support this year and wish all of Year 2 the very best as they move into Year 3.
