This year Oak and Willow classes had their final end of term trip to Blackpool to explore the geographical features and they will be using this experience to write a diary entry of their time spent at this famous coastal resort.
Mrs Warburton shared the history of the lifeboat centre at Blackpool and gave us all a guided tour, learning about how to become a coast guard and the important role they play in saving people's lives. The children met William and Eleanor and explained that the life boat crew do not get paid for their role and rely on very kind donations. She taught the children the 4 steps to follow in the event of an emergency at sea.
Spot the signs
Always go with a friend
Flags - explore the colour of the flags, as they will identify if it is safe to enter the water
Emergency - ring 999 and ask for the coast guard.
Then following our experience at the RNLI entre, we then explored how rock is made and all the children received their own very special piece of rock, kindly donated by Ann at the ‘Rock Kandy Kingdom Factory’.
Finally, to end our exciting day, we all joined together for some fun on the beach building sandcastles, splashing in the pools of sea water, playing the odd game of football and enjoyed an ice-cream.
All the children were exceptionally well behaved; what a fantastic day we had beside the seaside.
