On Friday 6th September the school went to Inchydoney Beach for a Science exploration day.  After much praying that the weather would clear, the lunches were packed and the nets and buckets stored. Then a bus load of very excited pupils and teachers headed off to the coast. The sun finally came out just as we arrived.  The pupils headed down the steps to the empty beach, which stretched for miles, left, right and inland. Due to the tide being fully out the school was able to find a beautiful, small, hidden beach full of rock pools, crabs and fish. They spent an enjoyable couple of hours delving in and out of the jutting landscape, up and across rocks, down into hollows, calling to each other excited to show their findings. We set up an exhibition pool big enough to hold all their catch. Afterwards we had our lunch on the beach and then a quick game of football while others enjoyed a paddle in the sea. A thoroughly enjoyable day was had by all and a bunch of exhausted but smiling faces greeted their parents back at the school at home time.
