Sea Life Centre Visit

This week, children in the Nursery and Reception classes visited the Sea Life Centre in Great Yarmouth. The children were given a guided tour so they could learn all about the fish and sea creatures in the centre. They were even allowed to touch a starfish! The trip was highly informative and thoroughly enjoyed by all the children. More pictures of this trip will be published on our Facebook page and in the website news section tomorrow.

Fishy artwork

Following their trip to the Sea Life Centre on Monday 10th March, our Nursery pupils created these very clever Nemo-inspired fish paintings.

Our youngest pupils take a trip under the sea

On Monday 10th March our Nursery and Reception children visited the Sea Life Centre in Great Yarmouth. They all had an amazing day learning about all sorts of different sea creatures.

We had a guide who took us around the centre and told us lots of interesting facts; for instance do you know the difference between a male and female crab? Ask one of the children who will be able to tell you! We were able to touch some of the creatures in the rock pool to discover what they felt like. We walked underneath a tunnel of sharks and saw the funny faces on the flat fish.

The trip was a great success and all the teachers were really proud of the children who were very well-behaved. See more photos from the trip.
