On Friday Class 2 and Nursery 2 embarked on their exciting trip to St. Mary’s Lighthouse.
Class 1 and Nursery 1 had told us how much fun the trip was and they were not wrong!
We spent the morning rock pooling. We went off in groups with our nets and buckets to see what exciting and interesting creatures we could find. Every group did amazingly. Some found hermit crabs, prawns, shrimps, sea snails and some crab shells. Some lucky groups even managed to find some rather large crabs! We also found a beautiful starfish and we saw two hermit crabs swap shells!
Luckily we went inside for lunch just in time as the heavens then opened.
After lunch (a favourite part of the day for many children) we had lots of sea songs and acted out a sea story. We also went on a very big adventure… all the way to the top of the lighthouse! We had to climb a whopping 137 steps! All the grown ups were so proud of how sensible and brave every child was.
We all had a brilliant day and we hope it has inspired the children for our ‘Commotion in the Ocean’ topic. Thank you to all the parents and carers that came to help, we could not do trips without you! Also a huge thank you to the PTFA who helped towards the cost of the trip.
