As part of our 'Oh I do like to be beside the seaside' topic , Year 1 enjoyed a trip to Brightlingsea this week! They went on an 'I spy at the seaside' hunt in the morning to find the features of the seaside. The children found wind turbines, seaweed, seagulls, beach huts, a tower, warning signs and boats amongst many other things. In the afternoon, they enjoyed having a sandcastle competition. Everyone had a lovely day!
