After this, we boarded the bus again and headed to Tomakin Cove and looked at 5 different types of seaweed, limpits and black nerites and learned that for every 2 out of 3 breaths we take - the oxygen comes from algae! We explored a little more on the beach, had a run, then headed to the Mossy Point boat ramp for lunch. We were fortunate to see the pelicans having some lunch courtesy of some fishermen :) We then walked around the rocks and up the stairs to the anchor on Mossy Point headland. From there we drove down the hill to Candalagan Creek where we read about the Rover ship misadventure and how Boulbi, Warragal and Lee all helped with the rescue, right here in Broulee. This is where our school house names come from. We walked across the bridge and around the beach before hopping back on the bus to school. We had a wonderful day! Big thanks to Nicky, Cat and Miss A for joining us.
The children are now busy creating models of the local area which reflect what we saw. You will be able to view these in our exhibition early next term.
