On Monday 9AB visited Wembury Beach on a fact finding mission. The trip is all part of a project the class are involved in called 'Marine Wildlife Champions' It involves the students undertaking research around an issue facing marine life and then sharing what they have learnt with the rest of the school. The idea is that by learning things themselves they then pass this onto the rest of the school. The are 10 schools throughout Plymouth taking part and the project culminates in all the schools sharing their work at the National Marine Aquarium in June. The class has been helped by a Marine Education Officer Coral smith who was one hand to answer any queries our budding champions had. 9AB have decided to look at plastic pollution and were at Wembury to see how much plastic they could find. The answer was quite a bit even on a National Trust beach which is regularly cleaned there are lot lots of plastic. The class were there for an hour and managed to pick up four bags of plastic rubbish.
