English Trips to Spanish City

Inspired by the journey of Phileas Fogg from “Around the World in Eighty Days”, we travelled to Whitley Bay to explore the nearby coastal town. After eating some delicious ice creams at Di Meo’s, we had a peek inside the newly refurbished Spanish City. As well as applying topic words to a real life situation, the trip provided a stimulus for our travel log writing project. Here are a few pictures we took a long the way….
