This was a two week project, running from Monday June 27th to Sunday 10th of July, and was designed to coincide with a holiday by the sea.
It's the second Arthur Ransome project the children have had (see Project 140: Arthur Ransome and the Big Six), and they are well-written, realistic wholesome adventures, that don't include outlandish scenarios or fantastical/magical elements. The only warning would be that they are quite big books!
There was also plenty of other educational activities on the trip,
