And on their third attempt, the wind conditions favoured our Grade Fives and they finally made it to St Paul's Islands.
The students investigated different flora and fauna on the islands, and measured the distance to the statue of St Paul.
They were lucky enough to stumble upon a team of marine biologists who were carrying out tests on various fish samples. This was an bonus learning opportunity for the students, as they learnt all about the process of hatching Sea Bream.
Our budding biologists also took a sea water sample, to conduct a salt separation experiment in class.
This visit is linked to their thematic approach and too place with the support of the Environment and Resources Authority.
What a wonderful learning experience!
