Trip: Sea Life Centre

Blue Class really enjoyed their trip to the Sea Life Centre. We saw a range of habitats from the rainforest  to coral reefs and rockpools.  Favourite moments were walking over the glass bridge with sharks under our feet and being able to touch a real starfish. It really brought our Blue Abyss topic to life! We saw lots of creatures we had been learning about at school including anemones, coral and sharks.  We even managed to see the penguins at feeding time and hold a real penguin egg!  Our trip has helped us back in the classroom to write fantastic descriptions and create stories using the creatures we saw.
