Once again, FoSB played host to the delightful Hove Rainbows who came for a picnic on the beach and to explore the flowers still battling the harsh conditions of summer.
This year the Rainbows looked at how the plants survive and save water, by finding plants with fleshy or pointed leaves, low growing or sheltered and, working with an adult, used the wild flower card to identify those they found.
The mass of Starry Clover on the beach this year meant that everyone found a spot to look at and draw this rare plant . The Rainbows finished with a mini litter-pick. The weirdest thing found was a toy soldier…….which was the same thing they found last year.
They really are a lovely group, with some enthusiastic parents, some of whom have never visited the beach before, so it was a real pleasure to spend some time with them and open their eyes a little to what can be found when you really look!
See you all next year!
