Year 6

Bracklesham Bay

18  Oct  2017

Today's blog is written by Tia from Onyx class:

On the 12th and13th of October, Year 6 went to Bracklesham Bay.

When we went, Mrs Bone (who is an expert on fossils) told us about the different types of fossils. Then we all went and found our own shells and one of us even found a shark tooth - it was amazing! Unfortunately, not one of us found an ammonite but we did find: shells, cockles, one shark tooth, and no more than that.

Did you know that some modern sea-snails like to feed on other shell-fish? They drill a hole through their shells with their mouths and then suck out all the insides! We decided to eat at Bracklesham Bay; it was so windy that all the birds couldn’t fly! Secondly, despite the wind we found even more cockles and shells (still no ammonites.) Next, we found even more fossils.

If you would like to visit Bracklesham Bay, there’s more than enough so visit today!
