Aunt Dotty's Seaside Adventure

Key Stage: One


This fast paced "time travel" day allows visiting pupils to explore holiday activities from the past. Journeying on the NNR "Time Train" from the Edwardian era through to the 1930's and then on to the 1950's, children are able to compare the changes in travel destinations, leisure activities, holiday accessories and social classes of the different periods.
