Beach School

This morning, with Dave the geologist on East Runton beach, we found a fossil beach, along with quartz, sea glass, belomnites and more stone from Norway.

Before coming back to school, we read The Sand Horse in preparation for our animal sculptures, this afternoon.

Beach School

 This week, with David the Geologist, everyone managed to find a belemnite plus many more rocks and shells that they found interesting. Some children decided that they would like to be geologists when they grew up!

This afternoon, after reading the Sand Horse, the children created their own animal sand sculptures.

Beach School Sculpturists

This morning, we had the opportunity to scour the beach for fossils, with the help of David Bullard. Many children found a fossil and David was able to tell the children the names of the rocks they found interesting. One rock had come all the way from Norway, in a glacier!

Time was a little short this afternoon as we has to walk a further to find a suitable part of the beach for our activity, as the sands and rocks had shifted. The children listened to a story about a beach sculpturist who liked to create animals in the sand. There was then a short time to create sand sculptures before returning to school. Anyone who particularly enjoyed this activity will have the opportunity, again, when they have choosing time, next time they are at Beach School. 

If your child's photo is missing, this is because I do not currently have permission for their photo to be on the blog. If you would like to see them on here, in the future, please let the school know.
