Seaside Project

One thing I am really keen for the boys to develop is group work skills, not just working alongside others.  With a few friends I’ve been working on setting up a group for mid age kids, but we have been hampered by the lack of suitable venues.

In the mean time we decided that we’d make the most of the local environment and do a bit of a seaside project.

So on Thursday we met at Southsea library, where the children shared holiday photos and memorabilia.  We made a list of things the associate with the seaside and set out on a walk to see what we could see.

Sharing a scooter is not the most effective means of transport
neither is reading as you walk (we found a stall selling lovely crafts and some second hand books )

 

We ended up at Cumberland House.

It will be lovely if we manage to sort out the details and set up a workable group.  In the meantime the sun shone and we had a nice day out.  Although I did learn that the 1A bus does not go to the very and coming home from Southsea through Fareham instead of Gosport takes a LONG time!
