We went to the beach today, the weather took a little time to clear but when it did it was glorious. We brought our lunches and had a picnic. The pupils spent 3 hours exploring the rock pools¸ streams and the sea edge to find loads of fish, shells and crabs.
From the youngest to the oldest including the staff, it was heads down, bottoms up and nets to the ready. It was a great educational morning, they found loads of tiny mussels clinging to the rocks among shell encrusted limpets. They found lots of different types and sizes of crabs. The hermit crab was Miss Walsh’s favourite.
Sue Blake and Mr Grainger were on hand to help us and they had seashore identification books to identify all our finds. The pupils found starfish, shrimp, goby fish and sea anemones, some of the pupils were very lucky to see a jellyfish.
