Avocets discover local habitats in Dawlish Warren!

Posted on

On Friday, Avocets class went to Dawlish Warren to have a look at local habitats. This coincided perfectly with our current Science topic on habitats.

Following the success of the cake sale all the way back in September, there was a little money left so what better way to use it up with another school trip!

We caught the train into Dawlish Warren and met up with Stephen, one of the rangers there. He had some activities set up including pond dipping and meadow sweeping as well as specimen jars/containers to look at what animals there were. Following these activities, we headed down to the beach and did some beach combing. Amongst the creatures found were crab claws, various shells and even some washed up cuttlefish eggs.

Many thanks to Stephen for his knowledge and information on local animals. The trip tied into our topic well. Stephen did mention that there are a lot of activities going on through the summer holidays for children to participate in.
