Taking it Further

Listed below are some ideas of how this topic could be developed, whether in the classroom or outside :

•   Create a 3D Beach scene where children make patterns with shells, pebbles and stones

•    Visit to the Seaside/Beach – including making sandcastles

•    Make up own seaside story

•    Create postcards and send them

•    Set up Travel Agents / Ice Cream Van

•    Discuss and pack a bag for a holiday

•    Beach Games

•    Design Swimming Costumes and Towels

•    Re-enact old beach scene and take photographs

•    Being safe in the sun – what do you need

•    Encourage children to bring in pictures from home of being on the beach and to ask
      grandparents/parents about going to the beach as children. What did they do?
