CHILDREN from Charmouth School didn’t let rain stop play as they headed on to Charmouth Beach for an educational afternoon.

The school is currently working towards beach school accreditation, which allows them to extend the education outside of the classroom and into more practical studies on Charmouth Beach. Working closely with a ‘beach school leader’ from the heritage centre, every class will have the chance to attend lessons on the beach, boosting links between the national curriculum and practical learning.

As part of their learning this week. the Year 1 Coral Class was greeted by ‘Captain Lindsey’ from the heritage centre for pirate-themed activities on the beach, including building a pirate ship.

After building the ship, the children walked the plank and went on a treasure hunt to find gold coins and learned a pirate song.

Headteacher Gillian Morris said: “With lots of new and exciting changes at Charmouth Primary School and a clear vision for our future, our aim is to ensure our children reach their full potential.”
