Truro Pre-Prep have recently been on a trip to St Agnes beach.
Reception and Year 1 joined forces for a fun filled day at Trevaunance Cove. They started the day with a trip to St Agnes Museum and talked to Mr Radcliffe about the Leatherback Turtle that had washed up dead and found to have eaten plastic.
They then arrived at the beach where they had a talk from a local fisherman about the process of laying pots to catch crab and lobster. He also spoke to the children about his experience of noticing the increase of plastic in the sea over the last ten years. He gave the pupils a lobster and some crabs to release back into the sea. The group were also lucky enough to see a starfish.
After a lovely picnic, the children had the chance to work together to build impressive sandcastles and even have a paddle in the waves.
Reception have been learning about the negative effects of plastic pollution and are currently raising money to adopt a turtle through the Marine Conservation Society.
