SCHOOLCHILDREN enjoyed a tourist trip around their hometown to bring a favourite storybook to life.
The Year One pupils from Revoe Primary School journeyed around Blackpool on a traditional big red bus as part of their creative curriculum.
The 61 children set off from the school on Grasmere Road to take in the Mirror Ball, world famous Blackpool Tower and the zoo – and even thought they saw sharks in the sea during their trip.
Teacher Julianna Shearman said: “We saw all the major features of Blackpool so the children could recognise their area. Sometimes with young children you need to start with learning about where they live before you look further afield.
“The children have a good idea about their hometown now, it was a hands on look rather than just learning about it in a classroom. It was excellent.”
The journey was inspired by the five and six-year-olds’ favourite storybook The Naughty Bus, which tells the tales and adventures of a bus travelling to see new places.
The children saw the three piers, artwork along the Promenade, Blackpool Tower, the Comedy Carpet, Stanley Park and the zoo on Monday afternoon.
Chloe Jones, five, said: “My favourite bit was seeing the glitter ball.”
Lewis Gilbertson, five, said: “I liked the sharks. We saw the waves and thought there might be sharks in the sea.”
