This week, eight home educating families went rockpooling with staff from the Seascope Marine Research Centre.

We were the only people on the beach, and had fun combing the rock pools for creatures.

 

Among the group’s finds were plenty of crabs and sea snails, some starfish and the odd ‘butter fish’.

 The weather held out, and we had a great time exploring, sharing and learning together until the tide returned.

 

We are looking forward to partnering with the Seascope Marine Research Centre again in future.

One of our young explorers remarked that “I loved to pick the wee crabs with my net!”
