Both Chris in Lakes and Graham in Mountains department attended a 2-day Beach School leaders' course back in November. Chris is currently completing his Beach School Leader Open Award.
Chris and Graham along with many other staff in the school take groups of children to the beach regularly. Whilst there the children engage in games and learn about the environment, they are given the freedom to explore and discover. sessions can range from rockpooling to shelter building, fire making to learning about tides and recycling. the possibilities are endless.
The children are always fully immersed into their sensory surroundings; listening to the waves crash against the rocks or feeling the cold sand on their bare feet, the awe and wonder which the children display is always an amazing thing.
