Beside the Sea

We bring the seaside to you in this session, showing what you can find on rocky shores around the UK.

In our virtual dive into a rockpool, we introduce some of the amazing creatures that can be found at the coast. You'll learn cool facts about how these creatures live and we'll share some amazing natural artefacts from our beach in a box. Best suited to ages 5-8.
