These are a few of my favourite images of our school group rock-pool explorations in 2017 (so far). The learners really love being able to explore their natural environment, and I have to say that this is one activity I enjoy as much as the groups do!
Fish Hoek Grade 5. A little bit (OK, a lot!) of rain wasn’t going to discourage the Grade 5 class from Fish Hoek Primary School from rock-pooling.
Neither was it going to discourage the super enthusiastic Grade 1 class from Wynberg Boys Junior School.
The Grade 6 class from Muizenberg Junior School really got stuck into their outing to Dalebrook, and left no rock-pool unexplored.
Thembani Primary School Grade 6 and 7 learners had their outing on one of the most picturesque days of the year.
The Grove Primary Grade R learners were fascinated by the tiny African periwinkles. It was very sweet watching the teeny tiny people looking at teeny tiny rock-pool creatures.
Reddam House Tokai Grade 2 learners loved the cushion starfish and sea cucumbers that assistant educator Zanele Mayiya was showing them.
Micklefield Grade 7 learners investigated the limpets visible during the low tide.
Wynberg Girls Junior School Grade 3 learners seemed to have an eye for starfish, and found them all over the rock-pools.
The Grade 5 and 6 learners from Ntwasahlobo Primary School spent some time counting sea urchins. Some were even brave enough to gently pick up an urchin.
