Wembury Beach Trip 2.6.15
Ladybird Class thoroughly enjoyed the trip to Wembury Beach today despite the weather. We enjoyed creating beach sculptures, exploring the rockpools and learning about Wembury wildife in the Marine Centre. We saw shore crabs, beadlet anemones and even a HUGE jellyfish washed up on the sand!
Ladybird Class would like to thank you for your support with our trip. Additionally, we would like to say a big thank you to those parents that helped during the day.
