Yesterday P3/4 were blessed with fantastic weather as we visited the rockpools at Yellowcraigs and the Seabird Centre.
First of all Richard the ranger met us at Yellowcraigs for a session of rockpooling. We found shore crabs, hermit crabs, shrimps, anemones, starfish, jellyfish, snails, limpets, periwinkles and whelks.
After a visit to the playpark it was back on the bus for the short ride into North Berwick for lunch by the beach.
Jenny, the Education Officer, talked to us about the effects litter on the beach has on the wildlife. We then made rubbish boats – boats made out of rubbish! Andy then showed us how to use the cameras before letting us have a go. Finally we tried out he boats to see which floated and which could carry ‘guest’ (a stone).
Everyone had a fantastic time before returning to school absolutely exhausted. A big thank you to everyone who helped make this such a Grand Day Out.
