We missed out on cabbage and custard this morning as the lorry got stuck in the fog. YAY!!!
This morning, after breakfast, we had our first room inspections. We were scored out of 15 and the drying room, bathrooms, and our bedrooms were checked. Miss Page and Mrs Dean also gave us a score out of 5 for how quiet we were when we slept. Four out of five rooms were scored 2 out of 5. Niamh, Leeona, Freya, Bella and Lauren’s room scored 3. (There is still room for improvement)
We brushed our teeth (Lauren has her toothbrush, mum) and got ready for our activities at the beach. We created rock pools; Harry B, Harry M, Lauren and Leeona found a crab and Adam, Keiron, Caitlin, Flora and Nathan found an anemone and put them in their tubs. Emily H, Jack, Freya and Nathaniel found a stack of slipper limpets.
We then created sand castles and Niamh, Alice B, Kelsey and Finley’s group won. Their castle had a moat and a wall.
We looked for fossils and Alice S and Adam found a sharks tooth each. These are very rare and we had to look very carefully.
For lunch today we had ham rolls, tuna rolls, sausage rolls, cheese rolls and a chocolate cake.
This afternoon we set up our mammal hotels. Matthew and Kyle hid theirs in a plastic tunnel. They are hoping for a vole in the morning. Thomas and James are hoping for either a wood mouse or a vole.
This evening we are going to the hide. Emily B is hoping to see a fox and Ruby is hoping to see a badger. We are all very excited as we are also having a talk this evening from a wildlife photographer.
We have enjoyed reading your comments. Thank-you. Lots of us have sent postcards home today too.
