BEACH TRIP TODAY WILL GO AHEAD - WE WON'T A LITTLE DRIZZLE GET IN THE WAY OF A FAB TRIP! (AND THE FORECAST IS POSITIVE). 

BEACH TRIP   THURSDAY 18TH JULY

 

Each child will need:

  • named water bottle
  • named lunch box (preferably with a lunch in it!wink)
  • suitable  (comfortable and safe for running around) footwear (no flip flops)
  • a bag/rucksack to hold all their 'stuff' - practise them carrying it!
  • spare clothes???? Let's see what the weather forecast is like if there is likely to be puddles, wet sand etc.
  • suncream applied before school. (We cannot help them apply this except to squeeze the bottle and we find generally they get it everywhere. please do it beforehand!)

 

Optional extras:

  • sunhat? named
  • named bucket and spade- can they carry everything?   We adore them all but can't possibly manage 90 bags, bucket, hats, as well as our own heavy kits of first aid, sick bowls (oh yes), hi-vis jackets, wet wipes, anti-bac gel, clipboards of lists, risk assessment, 90 snacks...

NOT necessary:

  • snack. We will take school snack as we'll be hungry by 9.30 and ready for lunch by 11. (you think I'm joking don't you!)
  • ​​​​​​​wellies (unless the weather forecast is particularly bad)
  • swimwear- we will not be going in the water at all.

 

The day will hopefully go as follows:

All go to the toilet and check our bags.

Get on the coach and do up our own seatbelt (they did this beautifully on the way back from St Michael's) which is then checked.

​​​​​​​Sing very loudly.

Arrive Fisherman's Walk. Go to the toilet.

Walk down the zigzag and sort out our 'territory'. Recap our expectations of how to be Ready, Respectful and Safe.

Play games, build sandcastles, hunt for shells, create some beach art...

Go to the toilet. Snack.

Play games, build...

Go to the toilet.

Walk up the zigzag to the grassy area for lunch.

​​​​​​​Play in the sand park.

School- - guess what...go to the toilet.

Children go home. 

Staff completely crash out and then work out whose socks, bucket, lunchbox they are left with!  

​​​​​​​A huge thank you in advance for the parent helpers- we couldn't do it without you!!

How is your 'pinch n prop' going? Are those 'froggy legs' starting to appear in your child's preferred writing hand yet? Here is a visual of the 'pencil grip journey'.

Have you been told that your child needs to focus on their 'pinch n prop' and cursive letter formation? Check out the 'Useful Resources' folder for some worksheets around the theme of autumn to print off. They are from Twinkl and have some great ideas to help pencil control.
