Queen’s House Year 2 children enjoyed a trip to Southwold on 24 June 2014 to enjoy a Victorian seaside experience. Rosanna Johnson describes the day in her own words below;
We came to school dressed as Victorians. I was dressed as a Victorian girl. I had a white apron with a patch in the left corner. The dress was brown and the hat was white and frilly. We travelled from school in a coach; it was a very long journey. After that we went to the museum. We saw steam trains, clothes from Victorian times, fossils and jewellery. Whilst we were at the museum we all had a go on the touch screen where you can learn about steam trains and bathing machines. Next we played a quick game of ‘it’ in the graveyard and had a biscuit. We had our picture taken underneath a silver birch tree. After that we went to the lighthouse and climbed ninety-two steps. It was very steep and scary! We then went to Gun Hill for a play on the cannons and a photograph opportunity. We went in the Blyth Radio hut and sang, ‘Oh I do like to be beside the seaside,’ live on air! After a juice and biscuit at the Gun Hill kiosk, we walked down the promenade to the pier where we ate fish and chips. You could have had sausage and chips instead. When we were finished, we went to the beach for a play. Rosie, Joe and Eloise fell in the water when paddling. We built sandcastles and had lots of fun. Finally we got on the coach just before it started to pour with rain. We had a wonderful day.
