Today we are going describe a seaside holiday town in the United Kingdom.


Your first activity today is a seaside sorting activity:

Activity 1:

Seaside Sort - Natural or Man-Made? Can you recall the difference between natural (physical) and man-made (human)? Can you give an example of a natural/man-made feature we might find at the seaside? Sort the natural and man-made features appropriately using the Natural or Man-Made Seaside Sorting Activity Sheet.




Where is St. Ives? We are going to explore a seaside town in the UK without actually going there! You will be exploring St. Ives in Cornwall in the South West of England.

Do you know where Cornwall is located? Have you heard of St Ives?

You'll be able to locate St. Ives using the maps on the PowerPoint.


Did you see that St. Ives is on the coast, on the southern most tip of England, and the fact it is in a bay?

What things would you see if you visited St. Ives?

What things might be man-made? What might be natural?



Activity 2:

Use the video clip Visit Cornwall’s Video Guide to St. Ives .

Make notes and draw pictures of key points, places of interest/attractions and observations as you go using the St Ives Word Web Frame.
