Week 4 - Class Learning Reflection Blog
On Wednesday 29th June, we travelled by coach to Reculver to see the Roman Fort and look at some marine animals.
First, we went to up to the ruins of the Roman Fort. There we learnt that the Fort used to be much bigger but the sea ‘ate’ the Northern half of it. We could see lots of fields but we were told that the fort used to be surrounded by the sea and the Wantsum Channel. Then, we did a Geocaching treasure hunt where we used a compass to find hidden lunch boxes which included clues to tell us what would have been in those places 2000 years ago. For example, we found clues that said there would have been a church, headquarters and an east gate within the fort.
Next, we went down onto the beach. There we went rock pooling and learnt about the marine animals that lived there, what they ate and how they survived. We found things like sand hoppers, crabs, coral, sea anemones, oyster shells, seaweed, jellyfish, spider crab shell, mermaid purses and limpets. We found out that crabs actually eat sand hoppers! It was really fun to be able to go in the sea, catch crabs and hunt for sand hoppers. One of the crabs was squishy which meant it had shed its shell. The tools we used were spades, nets, magnifying glasses and brushes.
Finally, we had lunch, played in the park and went home!
