ALICE BY HAYTOR CLASS!
The official unveiling of the mosaic designed to commemorate the 700th anniversary of Denbury Church by Denbury Primary School students!
Haytor Class spent the day at Goodrington, Paignton carrying out a series of science and environmental activities working with Chris from the Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust. In the morning we conducted a microplastics survey sampling a traverse of the beach from wall to shoreline. We completed the survey to submit our results in the global data that is currently being collated: https://microplasticsurvey.org.
Our second activity involved exploring the rock pools to identify species present and we even discovered how to tell the difference between male and female crabs!
After lunch we walked a short distance to the beautiful Saltern Cove and completed a second microplastics survey. Our survey results highlighted differences between the locations and generated further questions to investigate!
