Jane Darke’s house at Porthcothan is a perfect venue for schools to visit. The film The Wrecking Season provides a starting point. The house is full of objects related to the sea and sits above the dunes.

Jane has developed a set of lesson plans with Rachel Berrington, Primary School Teacher, which are available as PDFs below – just click on the ‘lesson plans’ title below or the bottom picture to see the selection.

Visit the Wrecking and Beachcombing pages of this website for a collection of images and information about the sea and beaches.
