On 5th June, Year 1 braved the great British weather and visited Talacre Beach, North Wales for a trip to the field study centre. With miles of golden sand backed by world famous sand dunes, the beach and surrounding area is an RSPB nature reserve and Special Area of Scientific Interest (SSSI).
Talacre has a truly magnificent example of a lighthouse; the Point of Ayr lighthouse, which dates back to 1776. Although decommissioned in 1884, the lighthouse remains a monument of the beach, rising 18 meters out of the sand.
The children had a fantastic time collecting and sorting rocks, shells and seaside plants and animals; the pupils didn’t seem to notice that it rained ALL day!
