On Tuesday Year 2 enjoyed a wonderful trip to Southwold which was a fitting end to the topic on Victorian Seaside Holidays. All the pupils dressed up as Victorian children and greeted passers-by with a doffing of caps or curtsey and a’ “Good day sir, good day ma’am” much to everyone’s delight. We started off at Southwold Museum which was fascinating – full of exciting things such as fossils, a Victorian Doll’s House, cannon balls and Viking ship steering oars. We then walked through the churchyard and past the lighthouse to the Sailors’ Reading Room – a delightful room full of model ships from every era. After that we headed to Gun Hill. We had a climb on the cannons and a delicious Victorian picnic lunch. Next stop was to have a play on the beach and a quick sandcastle competition. Finally we had a walk along the promenade to the pier and some welcome hokey-pokeys to cool us down.
