Summer 2 2022


Our topic theme this half term is ‘Buckets and Spades’. The children will be focusing their reading phase on the Lighthouse Keeper Stories by Ronda and David Armitage, with the written outcome being a narrative based on a seaside setting. The children will then move onto explanation texts where they will be able to write an explanation text, in the style of a pamphlet, linked to a process that happens at the seaside.


The children will develop their understanding of the seaside further by continuing to explore habitats in their science learning and Victorian seaside holidays in their history and geography learning! The children will find discover why such holidays became popular and how they have changed since. Links will be made to the seas and coasts of the UK, as well as the local seaside resort of Southport. The children will talk about key features of the resorts and discuss similarities/differences to Hesketh Bank. Then, before you know it, we’ll all be going on a summer holiday!
