Year 2 Southwold Trip


9 Jun 16

This week Year 2 have 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 mammoths’ teeth, fossils, a Victorian Doll’s House, cannon balls and Viking ship steering oars. We then walked through the churchyard, spotting WW1 and Victorian gravestones along the way, to the Sailors’ Reading Room – a delightful room full of model ships from every era. After that we headed to Gun Hill via a line-up of shiny 1930’s classic cars. We had a climb on the cannons and a delicious Victorian picnic lunch complete with our own private military aircraft display overhead! Next stop was a look around Ike’s beautiful beach hut, aptly named ‘Happy Days’, then onto the beach for a sand sculpture competition. There were some wonderful constructions complete with tunnels, moats and turrets as well as some marvellous mermaids. Finally we had a wonder along the pier and some welcome hokey-pokeys to cool us down. Many thanks to the Victorian adults, in their gorgeous gowns, who helped out!
