Sea Life Aquarium Trip

The children had a wonderful time on Friday, during our educational visit to the aquarium. This visit was linked to our learning about animals based on our Science topic. The children got to see animals they haven’t seen before, learnt more about habitats and how animals adapt based on their environment. It was a long day but the children did very well to get through it and a big thank you to the parent volunteers who helped us out. Below are some of the children’s comments during the day:

“It was scary when I saw the shark underneath me!” Kiana 2PP

“When we went to see the penguins it was really cold because they need these conditions to live.” Dhruv B 2FF

“It was cool to be able to touch the starfish in the rock pool.” Rowan 2PP

“I learnt more about a coral reef and it was interesting!” Veer 2FF

“As we went under a tunnel we saw the eyes and mouth of a Stingray.” Dhruvi 2FF
