Trip to Portmarnock Beach

The Junior Infants and Senior Infants were all lucky enough to go on a trip to Portmarnock beach before the break.
Dave came in and to our school first and told us all about the different types of life that live on the beach. We learned about crabs, seaweed, mussles and even lug worms (they're worms that cause the noodle like patterns in the sand!) Dave let us hold the creatures if we wanted to and some children really were very brave!


























 
 
 
 
Then we went on our first bus trip to Portmarnock beach, which the children seemed to think was almost like being on a roller coaster!
 






 
The beach was great fun because we got into two groups, one went with Jessica and one went with Dave and Maria. We had to find things that belong on the beach and things that didn't belong on the beach and make a sea monster out of them. One sea monster had long, skinny legs with 200 eyes and the other one had big thick legs and lots of hair, very creative!



















































We had a picnic, made sand castles, visited the rock pools with Dave and even had ice creams - what a perfect way to spend a Thursday morning! :)
