Primary Schools

Our Primary School activities are designed with young children in mind. The emphasis for us with this age group is building water confidence, introducing important water safety messages and familiarising them with new outdoor and adventure sports. From kayaking to rockpool safaris, we offer a range of aquatic and land-based activities here at the coast.

The following links provide details of the full range of activities we offer, venues and some useful FAQs.

Curriculum Links

All of our activities will support the delivery of both the KS1 and KS2 curriculum in physical education. Specific examples include:
• KS1: Develop balance, agility and coordination. Participate in team games.
• KS2: Take part in an outdoor and adventurous activity that challenges both individually and within a team. Develop flexibility, technique, control and balance.
• Swimming and water safety: Perform safe self-rescues in different water-based situations.

Our instructors can also tailor your programme of activities to look at other subject elements too. Examples include:
• Science: Identify and classify marine wildlife and their habitats. Explore the world around you and raising your own questions.
• Geography: Identify seasonal and daily weather and tidal patterns. Use landmarks and maps to plan a journey. Identify key physical and human features including: beaches, cliffs, piers and harbours.
• PSHE: Healthy lifestyles. Personal safety and wellbeing.

Debbie Davison, Cullercoats Primary School Beach Club
We run a beach school club for our Year 2 pupils (age 6-7) and over the last couple of years we have incorporated a watersports session with CBK. The children have absolutely loved it! As well as kayaking, they have enjoyed games on the giant paddle board. It has been great to see how their water confidence has increased in such a short amount of time. A fantastic experience with brilliant staff. Thank you.
