Science Comes Alive for Year 5
Being able to get out and about again and to seeing our school trips back in the diary has been fantastic.
Last week Year 5 took a trip to Plymouth as part of their science curriculum on interdependence and adaptation. The weather could not have been better, and as the children exited the coach, we all headed to the beach for some rock pooling in Plymouth Sound.
Studying this special habitat in their classroom lessons, they were in their element being able to put theory into practice, and to experience this environment first-hand. Looking up the beach the children were able to see clearly the zonation of the intertidal zone and observe the different species in the various rock pools. An impressive array of invertebrate animals was found in the hour and a half of beach trawling.
The afternoon was spent in the aquarium carrying out more in-depth studies of different marine zones from across the globe, and the children impressed the centre guides with their back-ground knowledge of marine environments.
