Some of the things we found out about sea creatures in our seas by talking to each other. We found out some interesting things about sea creatures in our seas. Lots of people had been to places like Cromer, Wells Pier, and Blakney to try to catch crabs. Members of our class had been to Donna Nook but also Hunstanton on the Wash Monster and Blakeny to look at the seals. Some of the school had been rock pool dipping finding all kinds of little sea creatures at a variety of different places on the Lincolnshire and Norfolk coasts. The Sea Life Centre in Hunstanton is a really popular place for people to go and find out about all kinds of sea creatures. Almost all the class agreed that the best thing about going to the seaside was having fish and chips for tea!!!
Rock Pools Lots of people in our class said they loved going to the seaside and looking for sea creatures in the rock pools when the tide goes out.
Cromer Crab Crab are a large part of the income of the town of Cromer. Historically the crab were only caught in the summer months, in autumn the fishermen brought Herring to the town, and winter cod was the main catch. This has now changed to solely bringing crab and lobster to the town. People still make a living out of fishing for Cromer crabs. Also people come to Cromer to stand on the pier and try their hand at using a line to fish for crabs.
Seals at Donna Nook Every year pupils from the school visit Donna Nook to look at the seal pups. We set off this year but it started to snow really heavy and we had to turn back.
The Wash Monster - Hunstanton You can take a boat ride on the Wash Monster out to one of the sand bars to watch the seals.
