The sun was shining for our Year 3 trip to the Hole of Horcum and Robin Hood’s Bay.
The purpose of the day was to imagine that they had to survive in the barren landscapes. They were asked to think about habitat, food and water sources and dangers that they may encounter. Some brilliant ideas and discussions were recorded, with a few laughs along the way.
The children began by exploring the delights and beauty of the Hole of Horcum.
After lunch they moved on to Robin Hood’s Bay and made the long journey down the hill and along the beach.
They collected washed up items to help stimulate their ideas for writing about their day of survival.
Lots of enthusiastic children shared their ideas on the coach on the way home of how they would survive in both these very beautiful places.
Over the next few weeks the children will be writing a story to incorporate all their ideas and experiences of their brilliant day out. We are looking forward to being able to share some wonderful stories written by the children.
