working together and having so much fun! They objects from the beach for their poems (apologies if they were rather smelly), they loved looking for different types of stones, crabs and shells. We even found a starfish! The children then had fun building sandcastles, making rivers and moats and burying each other. A few of us braved the cold waters and paddled out feet apart from the few which were jumping the waves and fell in, to say the least they were very wet and soggy!
We then had the long walk along the beach front to the ice cream shop. There were lots of comments 'are we there yet'. I think this was the quietist (and messiest) part of the day.
We finished the day with ball games (thank you Mr Gavin!) and duck, duck, goose on the beach before sheltering under the leisure centre due to rain where we played a game of tomato ketchup!
Thank you to all of the parent helpers.
