Year 2 - Saltburn

Y2 visited Saltburn on Wednesday 13th July as part of their History work comparing seasides past and present.  They began by looking at the bandstand before walking through the Valley Gardens where they caught the steam train on the miniature railway.  Next, they enjoyed a picnic lunch by the river before heading to the beach.  Whilst digging in the sand, they discovered a buried tin which contained many old fashioned items, such as wooden toys, a well-loved teddy bear, photographs and a letter written in 1905.  The letter described a child's seaside holiday and the children were amazed to discover all the traditional seaside activities that they'd leant about, such as Punch and Judy and hokey pokey ice-creams mentioned.  Finally, they rode the cliff lift back up to the top whilst enjoying the views and Victorian craftsmanship.
