Description

Stay and play on the beach - toddlers to pre-school

I'm a Playworker, Forest School leader and trainer and have worked in early years for 30 years. I believe children should have the opportunity to play outside exploring their local environment, this connects them to the landscape and community.

Cornwall Council sell 'pop-up' licences to work on their beaches and I have bought the one for Porthtowan. I can run children's sessions for families, nurseries and schools throughout the year.

This 1 1/2 hr session will be based around my Forest School style which is enabling like minded families to come together, to explore and experiment with what we find. Things picked up on the beach are called natural loose parts - sticks, stones, seaweed - and these are a fantastic open ended resource for children to play with. Children learn so much from freely chosen play and from being able to follow their own interests. I sometimes think that you really can see the cogs in their brains clicking round embedding all of that learning! I like to enable curiosity.

Depending on the tides we'll be making streams, rockpooling, creating beach art, building sea defences, looking at floating and sinking and generally having some fun! We'll always finish sessions with some bubbles :)

What learning will take place?

  • Learning about tides
  • Beach wildlife
  • Communication
  • Local geography
  • Problem Solving
  • Risk managment
  • Creativity

What do I need to bring?

  • Dress for the weather
  • Wellies or sandals
  • A drink
  • Bucket & spade - optional, but handy

No charge for babes in arms.

Please check your email before leaving if the weather is a bit lively! If the session does not run you will be offered a place the following week or a full refund.

Sessions will only run with four or more families. Ticket sales end at 9.45am.
