Falmouth Primary pupils enjoyed a masterclass exploring the wonderful world of the ocean and estuaries.
The 40 year 1 pupils spent the morning at Falmouth Marine School, learning about the importance of plankton in the marine food chain and why we need to protect our oceans.
Tom Vincent, Former Marine Science student and now Teacher at Falmouth Primary thought the day was a huge success.
“They absolutely loved it and have learnt lots of amazing new facts about how seasons affect animals on the beach and in the sea,” he said.
Marine Science Technician, Emily Theobald led the session and said it was “important to educate people from a young age about the marine environment and how their behaviour can effect it.”
“Children are like sponges and absorb the information, if we can assist in helping them to understand how import our marine environment is then the future is looking brighter,” she continued.
“They may even decide to become marine biologist themselves and come back to us in 10 years’ time.”
