On Thursday 06 June and Friday 07 June Yr9 made the infamous train journey to Castlerock as part of their Science activites at the end this term. With activities starting as soon as we set off, pupils measured the time between stops to enable them to calculate the train speeds back at school. The weather was perfect for our work in the sand dunes, investigating banded snail populations, marram grass growth and then on to the rocky shore to observe animal and plant adaptations there. A walk along the cliffs next and on Friday pupils managed to reach the dam and black glen where pupils looked at the design of the dam and were able to understand its construction and location, linking it with those used at reservoirs and hydroelectric schemes- we are now looking forward to the project work pupils submit before the end of term.
