Flying Start @ Cornwall College Go To Porthtowan for Beach School!
The pre-school department at Flying Start @ Cornwall College have started up again with weekly visits to the beach for beach school fun and learning!
The children all packed up their things to take to the beach and went in the Flying Start bus to Porthtowan beach, which was exciting in itself!
They spent most of the session learning about beach safety as it is their first visit to the beach in a while… They found where the lifeguard hut was, and spotted the lifeguards in their truck on the beach watching the sea and the swimmers and surfers in there. They talked about stranger danger and about where they would go if they got lost or hurt and couldn’t see the nursery grown ups… they decided they would go back to the lifeguards on the beach or in their hut.
They also identified the flags on the beach, and learned what they meant…and played a game where we said if we wanted to go swimming or surfing and then had to run to the right flag!
Then the children went on a hunt finding stones, seaweed, pebbles and sand to build houses for our little dinosaurs, we built some amazing houses with beds and seaweed roofs!
A great first trip, and the children and staff are looking forward to many more!
