School Teacher Blown Away (not literally)
With my class I noticed they are a lot more resilient when learning on the beach. They are more willing to have a go at new things and are more exploratitive in their approaches. Some of the children that take a back seat in the classroom really came alive at beach school and were able to showcase an otherwise unknown knowledge. The children were really enthusiastic about the beach learning and have been referencing it in our science and geography sessions since. For me this means it had a real impact on them as they have remembered it and can transfer it drawing on it in other sessions and
areas of the curriculum.
This was my first time doing beach school and I was blown away by what an amazing
thing it is.
My 3 year old absolutely loved it...
"What a fabulous 2 hours spent on the beach, Libby is an absolute star and will have your children engaged and excited learning about beach life. My 3 year old absolutely loved it, we made seashell wind chimes, studied and (those who were brave enough) held a crab, we also did a scavenger hunt! If your child loves the beach, they will love Seaside Explorers!"
The children haven't stopped talking about it since!
"Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Libby (and Audrey) at Seaside Explorers. The children had an amazing afternoon. Wonderfully creative - we have the seashell chimes in our beach hut.
But also the scavenging and their involvement was great. We all had a fantastic time looking for dog whelks, limpets and crabs. Thoroughly recommended. Children haven't stopped talking about it since. Thank you Seaside Explorers!"
A fabulous few hours with my niece
"Had a fabulous few hours with my niece at Seaside Explorers! We created 'Seaside in a Jar' that my niece was thrilled with, plus yoga, treasure hunt and beach art.
Libby was superb at directing the children to the activities whilst explaining the importance of staying safe
at the beach. Lots of information on the wildlife and surrounding area too. Thank you Seaside Explorers!"
