Beach School

This morning, enjoying the summer weather, the children explored the beach looking for evidence of life with the help of nature expert, Tim; the children were lucky enough to spot a seal in the water! Tim also talked to us about the tides and how they change.

Just before we got attacked by flies who were attracted to our high visibility jackets.

This afternoon, we read The Seaside Switch by Kathleen V. Kudlinski which described in poetic language how the changing tides affect the creatures that live on the seashore and in the sea. After this, the children took part in a scavenger hunt where some of the interesting finds were part of a small jaw with teeth (probably a fish) and a belemnite.
