12/09/2023-Morecambe Bay Crabbing
Today’s Culture Capital trip involved Calder class visiting Morecambe Crabbing Pool. This was a new school experience for all of the pupils. Some of them had been ‘crabbing’ when on holidaying with their families. One of the class members is a keen angler. He was eager to put his skills into action.
The class had all the relevant equipment, and a super-charged spirit to catch a bounty of crabs. Unfortunately, the crabs weren’t tempted by the bacon bait and many of the pupils were disheartened. However, there was lots of peer on peer support and a dogged determination to succeed.
The few pupils that did find some crabs were spontaneously congratulated by their peers. Dark rain clouds meant an early finish but the pupils were cheerful and chatty on the drive back to school.
