6S Go Sailing – updated with photos!
Thursday 10th January |
What a wonderful day at Yeadon Tarn 6S have had! Children have enjoyed their time on the water learning some of the sailing skills that Michael may well have used on his sailing journey around the world with his family.
As well as sailing, children have taken part in a survival drama activity, imagining how the young boy would have reacted after being washed up on a Pacific island in the Coral Sea, creating freeze frames to show what Michael may have done first. The children thought about some basic needs of survival: shelter, warmth, food, water and social interaction.
Children also developed their vocabulary knowledge using nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs to describe different parts of the environment: sea, ocean, the wind and the sun. After this, children, having looked at some examples, created shape poems using some of the words and phrases that they had thought of earlier.
A wonderful day 6S! Thank you very much to all the staff and the parent volunteers who made this trip possible.
