Seaside Holidays helps children identify similarities and differences between seaside holidays taken today and those taken in the past. Children are introduced to period-specific aspects of seaside holidays, geographical seaside features, and seaside vocabulary. Using contemporary and historical photographs, children can discover the past with topics such as when we take holidays, how we travel to the seaside, and what we wear to go swimming. The best-selling Start-Up series has been rewritten to emphasise the cross-curricular teaching potential of each title. Each spread includes notes and activities, highlighting ways in which learning can be extended into various subject areas. The other key change on the original series will be revamped end sections featuring extension learning details together with latest internet and web resource information.
