I am writing to say what a fantastic school trip I had when visiting Yellow Craigs this week. The whole school set off first thing for an exciting day, packed full of learning about the sea shore and the habitat it provides for many sea creatures. Our rangers, David and Bill seperated us into groups so that we could complete two activities to help our learning about our sea shore topic. The first activity for the P4-7 class was a beach scavenge hunt where we searched for lots of different artefacts on the beach and made a base with all of our collections. We then had to classify these items. This activity finished when each group had to create a sea creature in the sand using our collected items. What a variety!!!! They were all super, as the pictures show.
After lunch we then went rock pooling in search of sea creatures. We had an identity chart and nets and trays which we used to capture and observe different living things. A few groups even found small Blenny fish and starfish. We all managed to stay dry and everyone worked fantastically in their teams. I have to say that I was very proud to be alongside all of the Stenton pupils today as everyone was willing to participate in all activities (putting in lots of effort) really showing what a great school Stenton is. Can’t wait until our next trip now!!!!! Well done everyone
