In History this half term, we have been comparing seaside holidays from the past with holidays today.  We focussed on 3 key questions to guide our learning.


These questions were:


 Why did people travel to the seaside for holidays in the Victorian era?


Can we compare and contrast holidays during the Victorian era with             

        holidays today?


Was everyone able to go on holiday during the Victorian era?


We introduced key vocabulary and visited this at the start of each session and used it regularly throughout the half term.
