Brandwood Primary, Bolton. October 2013
Last week year 1 went on a trip to Underwater Street Discovery Centre in Liverpool. The children thought it was brilliant! We made water powed boats, pirate hats, fishing games, flowers and magnets. We were able to climb to the top of a climbing wall but some of us found it difficult to get down. There was also a building area where we could build a house. Logan built it all on his own. We loved the science show where we carried out lots of experiments. In one we made a water rocket and it soaked everyone, including the teachers!

Hillside Primary, Skelmersdale  July 4th 2012
I came to Underwater St with my schoolchildren last week and they (and I) had a fabulous day. There wasn't a dull moment and each child found many things that they enjoyed and were interested in. An excellent venue for schools and I am going with some family members during the school break. Thank you to you and all your staff for a wonderful day.

Mickle Trafford Village School , Chester, May  18th 2012 
Just a short note to say thank you to everyone at Underwater Street for making our visit so much fun on Friday.  The children had a fantastic day. 
On a personal note, I am a PGCE student at Liverpool John Moores University in my final teaching practice.  One of my university tasks was to organise a school trip, which is quite daunting.  Several of my friends on the course recommended Underwater Street.  
I would like to express my personal thanks to every member of staff at Underwater Street for making a potentially stressful process a very easy and enjoyable experience.  
I would certainly recommend Underwater Street for school visits, (and intend to bring my future classes on a regular basis), but particularly for students organising their first school trip.
 
Yours sincerely

Larkfield Primary, Southport,  February 27th 2012

Our reception and key stage 1 children went on an adventure today when they all visited Underwater street in Liverpool. This was a special full day session, just for our children who all thoroughly enjoyed the day and represented Larkfield so well by behaving beautifully. Judging by the stories they all had to tell when they returned to school it was clearly a packed day and I think the children [and helpers] will sleep well tonight!

West Bank Primary, Widnes, May 12th 2011
Dear staff at Underwater Street, my class of Reception loved their day at Underwater Street and were very excited to write letters thanking you for their experience. They were enthused for days and recreated lots of things they did at your centre in school-our water tray became a gold panning extravaganza with pieces of play dough serving as gold!
Our Nursery and Reception were similarly impressed!
I wanted to say thank you for the stress free trip and congratulate you on creating a fantastic exploration based play facility for little ones.
I hpe you enjoy reading the letters and look forward to my next visit.

New Park Primary, Liverpool, 15/09/2010
Dear All the staff at Underwater Street,

After visiting Underwater Street today with our Year 2 classes, we justwanted to say a huge thank you to all the staff. We had a fantastic day.
The children especially loved the Science show, the climbing wall and dressing up/role play. It was by far the best, most memorable school trip I have ever experienced ~ and the staff loved the making magnets !!

Your staff were professional and ensured that all children were included within the activities. Knowing that our children were safe and secure at all times allowed the staff to participate in all the activities whilst
the children were 'independent learners' ~ exploring all areas!

The day went so quickly, it's hard to believe we spent 4 hours with you!!

Thankyou once again ~ a memorable experience!

Kindest regards
Adele Rosenbloom and all the Y2 staff at New Park Primary, Kensington,
Liverpool.

Woolston C of E Primary School, Warrington (25/06/09)
Hi, Just wanted to say a huge "Thankyou" to everybody at Underwater Street for once again making our Reception class trip to Underwater Street so FUN packed and enjoyable!  This is the second year running that we have visited the centre and each time the day has been enjoyed by all.  Staff feel relaxed knowing that children are secure within the building (safety buttons on doors) and children are free to roam and enjoy each of the areas at their own pace.

The activities on offer were once again FUN and well-organised and the staff at each of the areas were so friendly and helpful, making our children feel comfortable and relaxed when they wanted to do an activity.

The Science lab show was wonderful.  We did not see this the previous year but we hope that next year this will be on offer again.  The children were amazed by the erupting volcano and the bottle cork shooting out of a pop bottle.

Just thought that it would be nice to e-mail you, to let you know that the trip was PERFECT in every way and we will return each year!

Thanks again,
Catherine Taylor (Reception class teacher - WOOLSTON C OF E PRIMARY SCHOOL)


Alderley Edge School For Girls, Cheshire
To all at Underwater Street

Our Reception class came for a visit for the very first time today (12.06.09) and we all had a fabulous time.
From the warm and friendly welcome, on arrival and throughout the day, the girls were utterley absorbed and involved in all that was on offer.
The organisation was superb, we really appreciated the way that the things the children made were organised ready for us to take home.
It was a delight to see the girls faces as some of them overcame the challenge of the climbing wall, whilst others busied themselves in the Pizzeria.And they were amazed at the chance to paint a real car!
We can't wait for a return visit

Thank you

Helen Carney

Portland Primary School, Birkenhead May 17th 2009
Just wanted to thank you for a fantastic day out. My 28 year 1 children had the best day, they were exhausted and enthused all at the same time! Our Big Write work the following day was about our trip and they all wrote about their favourite part, with over 15 different activities mentioned. From my own point of view I was very impressed for the entire day, the safety aspects of all the activities, the fact the children could move round freely and that they could actually reach the toilets! (something often overlooked) Could you thank all your staff who were kind, enthusiastic, patient and excellent at their jobs. We will be recommending you to everybody, and I will be bringing my daughter and her cousins as soon as possible. Thank you again for fitting us in at fairly short notice and providing such an excellent and much need child friendly, value for money, hands on, local experience. We all loved it.
Debbie Randles. Year One teacher, Portland Primary School, Birkenhead.


Victoria Primary School, Keighley. February 25th 2009
Hi Gaynor &  Geoff
Just a quick e-mail to thank you and your staff for a wonderful day out. It was really worth the long journey. The children were so full of themselves and eager to tell us about everything they had done. (A rare thing for us)!
At my next co-ordinators meeting I shall certainly recommend you to all the schools in the Bradford/Keighley area.  
Once again thank you for giving us all a great day and loads of motivation.

....the Reception children had a fantastic day at Underwater Street in Liverpool.
There were lots of exciting things to do--they went inside a giant bubble, filmed themselves for a TV programme, worked on a construction site, served pizza in a pizza parlour, panned for gold, climbed the climbing wall.  They even painted a real mini!

All the children thoroughly enjoyed the school trip to Underwater Street in Liverpool. Underwater street is a hands on, experiential learning environment for children aged 2-10. The children enjoyed exploring the 6 themed zones, including the physical zone with a climbing wall and making lots of creations in the creative area. Great fun was had dressing up in Imagination Village and "panning for gold " in the sensory area

Underwater Street is a place that promotes learning through discovery and thus promotes self esteem. It is a great place to visit.

 
Gwladys Street School, Liverpool
We would like to thank you all for making our day at Underwater Street so enjoyable, the children all enjoyed the day and had a fantastic time (letters from the children are enclosed). From our staff's point of view it was a relaxing day as we didn’t have to worry about where the children where and toileting facilities. Inside Underwater Street we knew the children were safe therefore staff enjoyed the day as much as the children. Thank you all, once again for a wonderful day. We know a lot of the children will visit again and have spoken of having their parties at Underwater Street.
Many, many thanks,
Mrs O' Leary, Mr Fairlead, Mrs Cummins, Mrs Quinton, and Mrs Chambers

We really appreciate your kindness to the children and we have recommended Underwater Street as a fantastic day out to all the children and staff back at school.

Yours sincerely,
