Aquarium Visit 07.01.15
The Year 1 classes kicked off the new term with a visit from the National Marine Aquarium. We felt that this would be a real WOW start to our new topic of mythical undersea worlds and creatures. The title of the presentation was ‘The Truth Behind Finding Nemo’ and it explored which parts of the film could have been true and which parts had been made up. The presentation was supported by real sea creature specimens throughout (not living ones!) which the children were allowed to touch and explore afterwards.
Fun facts that we learnt:
Our favourite parts were holding the turtle shell, the sharks jaws (some of us were even brave enough to put our heads in) and comparing different sized teeth – the biggest by far was that of a whale which had spiky bristles attached for the whale to filter its food.
We had a fantastic learning experience and are looking forward to using what we learnt in our follow up work across a range of different subjects.
