Field Trip to Portsdown Hill and Southsea.

The trip starts as soon as we set off on the coach. The children have an 'Eye-Spy' book of geographical features to spot on the journey and throughout the day.
The first stop is on top over Portsdown Hill. This provides the children with a panoramic view over Portsmouth and Southsea. It is a living map with many geographical features to see, both physical and human. You can see the sea, motorway, Spinnaker Tower and the Isle of Wight.
The second stop is at Portsmouth Sea Walls. During this stop the children walk through the walls to the stony beach and sketch the view including the ferries, yachts, fishing boats and even the hovercraft.
Lunch is in by the Victorian bandstand with views out to sea with its many ships and boats as well as the forts.
After lunch the children walk along the Southsea Promenade looking out for Victorian street furniture before sitting on the edge of the promenade to write a postcard home.
Below is a virtual field trip we 'took' during Lockdown. 
Some parents used the Eye Spy booklet and took their children on the field trip during the Lockdown.
