Teesmouth Field Centre

Posted 9/6/2016

On Wednesday 8th June Class 3 had a fact finding trip to Teesmouth Field Centre to learn about Rocks and Fossils. 

This is Emily’s report about the trip:

First we went into the field centre and Mrs Burns told us about lots of different types of rocks, fossils and shells. Some of us pretended to be sand, soils and mud. We then sat on each other’s knees to show how layers are formed in rock by squishing together...

After snack, we went to the beach and we walked up the sand dunes. We found lots of different plants and animal habitats. On the beach we found lots and lots of shells and rocks. We found sandstone, slag, limestone and flint. We saw a seal and hundreds of Seal Slaters that are like wood lice. They live in the rocks at the mouth of the river.

After we had lunch, we got into groups and did 6 investigations with rocks and sand. I liked challenge 5 the best when we had to separate sand and water.

My favourite part of the whole day was walking on the beach looking for rocks.
