Some comments from participants:
This course was absolutely fantastic! It was well led, included great activities, covered all health and safety and risk, and was so much fun. It really inspired me to expand my beach school programme and helps me differentiate activities between year groups. The location was great – lots and lots of wildlife I had never seen before which was very inspiring and motivating – hermit crabs, anemones, barnacles, fossils. Hazel was a fantastic leader as always, as was Steve. Thank you for a wonderful learning experience, would recommend it to everyone!

Lots of great ideas to use with children of all ages. Activities clearly explained and demonstrated. Great sharing of knowledge and ideas within the group in a safe, fun and friendly environment. Love the practical side of the course and great way to extend info/knowledge/skills learnt on Forest School course. Can't wait to share experiences with the children, hope they have as much fun as I did. Brilliant end to the half term!
