Year 3 trip to the Sunshine Coast!
The sun shone as Year 3 explored Eastbourne for the day.
Teams of children carried out surveys in the town centre, interacting with a wide range of people to find out what they thought of the area and what the advantages and disadvantages of the town were. One group even stumbled across a retired headmaster who gave them extra spellings.
In teams, we also completed a photo challenge. We stood exactly where photographers had stood to take photographs in the past, sometimes over a hundred years earlier. When compared, our photographs really showed the incredible ways that the settlement had changed over the past century.
We then enjoyed fish and chips at the beach and visited the Heritage Centre to find out about how the town developed. The kind staff did an excellent job of helping us to find out about the history of the town, with pictures, models and artefacts; there was even a small cinema in the basement.
All children did an excellent job and members of the public commented on their superb manners and brilliant behaviour. Most, in fact, seemed delighted to be asked questions by the children, who then wished them a nice day. For us, it certainly was!
