Science - Sound

During this unit of work we will:

Between the land and the sea there is an area that has a special name. It is called the coastline. The coastline is a narrow stretch between the sea and the land. The shape of our coastline is constantly changing. Our coastline is shaped by the sea, the air and the land. The United Kingdom has lots of different types of coastlines.

Tourism is the word that describes all the things tourists do. Tourism includes travelling to the place, staying there, eating and drinking in the place, buying things like ice cream and doing activities.
