Reception children from a Skegness primary school went on a mini beast hunt at the town’s Coastal Eco Centre.

The outing for 60 youngsters from Richmond Primary School gave them a positive learning experience in the great outdoors.

Class teachers Suzanne Rutherford and Rachel Stacey said the children enjoyed the activities and learned a lot about the world around us.

The eco centre offers facilities such as classrooms, workshop areas and a gym as well as woodlands, meadows, ponds and other habitats. It covers many different topic areas such as horticulture, conservation, ecology, sustainability, recycling and the arts.

The centre also teaches about subjects such as health and safety as well as literacy and numeracy.

People of all ages can also pick up work skills and learn how to be prepared for the world of work.
