Keep connected to the coast learning from home
Downloads, kits and projects
For those that can't make it to the beach
A Beach Academy 'Coastal Kit' combines raw materials sent in the post (collected from south Wales beaches) with digital resources (worksheets/ideas/instructions) sent via email for you to print, interact and learn from your seashore objects. No live animals or plants will be used as part of this service.
Why use our resources
Resources are written and designed by Emma Lamport at Beach Academy. Previous to setting up Beach Academy Wales she was a member of a Ranger Team delivering Environmental Education in country parks and on the coast and worked for council Countryside and Tourism teams delivering family events.
She also has over 10 years developing educational materials to be used by children in their homes and schools right across the UK in educational publishing, working as an Editor for two BBC children's educational magazines, wrote a guide to Life, the World & Everything for all 16 year olds across Wales and designed and delivered printed educational materials for the Western Mail & Echo plus others such as the Wildlife Trust and Marine Conservation Society.
As a self-taught heavyweight graphic designer, she has created everything from printed worksheets to teacher packs, how-to-guides to self-led nature trails, kids magazines to newspaper supplements, outdoor educational signage to educational games, activity sheets to challenge cards, educational programmes to identification guides and still continues to use her specialist bank of skills in creating materials for a Learning Outside the Classroom accredited Zoo, helping children to learn about wildlife and conservation issues, as well as her own material for Beach Academy and NRW.
