Fun and Learning at the Seaside

The beach is your classroom!

Our free educational toolkit is packed with everything you need to give your class a deep insight into our coastline. You’ll find a detailed introduction document which highlights practical and safety information for your visit; and includes some background information on Thanet and the suggested beaches you visit.

There are suggestions for activities and accompanying resources, with each activity tailored to either KS1 or KS2, or both and linked to different subjects in the curriculum. There are accompanying audio files which explore some of the unique stories of our coastline and key messages about sea safety.

Introduction to the Learning Resources       

To make the most of your visit, and ensure beach safety, please do read these as they contain important information about making us aware of your trip. This introducation also includes a list of other useful contacts in the local area.
