A smack of Jellyfish by Year 5


Year 5 pupils created this colourful ‘smack’ of jellyfish in art last term.

  • Did you know that jellyfish…

… can be bigger than a human, while others are as small as a pinhead?
… are eaten by people in some countries?
… have been on Earth for millions of years, even before dinosaurs?
… have no brain but some kinds have eyes?
… are mainly made up of water and protein?
… and that a group of jellyfish is called a ‘smack’?
