Following on from our Plastics in the Ocean topic, Year 2 had a wonderful trip to the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth.
The children investigated the contents of a hammerhead shark’s stomach; they explored the importance of reusing or refusing single use plastics; they learnt how an octopus cleans its brain; and they also found Nemo!
The children explored local shores as well as distant oceans and demonstrated their deep understanding of plastic pollution. The children were delighted with the new Truro School sandwich bags that are completely compostable plastic, just one of many recent eco developments.
Year 2 have earned their Truro Pre-Prep Ocean Guardian certificates. Thank you to Stu at the National Marine Aquarium for a fantastic day!
