Today we read the story Sally and the Limpet. After the story we explored this fascinating little sea creature. We found out that Limpets are small sea snails with a cone shaped shell. They have a soft body which they use to stick themselves to rocks. This stops them from being washed away by strong waves and protects them from predators.
We talked about other animals that grip onto rocks such as starfish, anemones and sea urchins.
We thought the sea urchins looked like underwater hedgehogs because they were round and spikey.
