The tour began promptly as we all boarded the bus, the three mystery locations weighing heavy on our minds. As the bus wound its way up the lanes all eyes where focused out of the windows looking for clues. Quickly the guessing started “Bude, Wadebridge, Boscastle” echoed through the bus. Our first port of call came in to sight and it was ……. Tintagle, the Old Post Office.
At the Old Post Office we explored the sounds we heard on that frosty winter’s morning, and the textures that could be felt. As evidence of our visit all the children took wax rubbings from all the different textures that they found around the building. With the wax rubbings in hand we escaped the cold, back on the bus and off we went.
Our next stop was Valency Valley in Boscastle. Here we took a stroll up the river again exploring the sounds we could hear. We also explored sight, finding the different shapes and colours in that natural environment apposed to the manmade site we had just been to. We all had a good run around and found the best leaves for flying before we went back to the bus.
The final mystery destination soon came into view form the bus window, “yay we are going to the beach”, Crackington Haven to be precise. First we listened to the sounds of the sea, we decided that Tintagle was the noisiest place of all. We hunted the beach to find all the different things that make up a beach. As I little souvenir the children made nature collage book marks to take home.
