We are very lucky at St Mark's to have some interesting visitors during each term.
We were very lucky to have representatives from our local RNLI lifeguards come and talk to us all about being safe on the beach and in the sea. Some of our beaches locally are not lifeguarded but some are.
We learnt about the coloured flags and what they mean. We are very glad they are at the main beaches in Bude to keep everyone safe in the summer.
We were very fortunate to have a group of people called The Beach Guardians visit the school to talk about the effects of plastic pollution on our planet. Class 1 enjoyed a morning of different activities which emphasised the need to drastically reduce our use of plastics. We also created some art using some of the plastic waste found on our local beaches.
We will be looking at ways we can reduce our use of plastic and sharing these with the wider community.
Visit from the charity 'Dog's Trust'
On Monday a representative from the charity 'Dog's Trust' came to visit us. She was able to provide each class with an informative workshop on 'How to be safe with dogs'.
The children took the opportunity to ask questions about rehoming dogs and were very interested in the specialist knowledge that she shared with them.
We were amazed and entertained by the Travelling Tuba group. We learned a lot about how the Tuba creates it's sound.
