Blue Abyss: The memorable experience for Year 4 was a trip to the Blue Reef Aquarium at Tynemouth. The children found out lots of exciting facts about sharks, like how many teeth they have, the two different kinds of shark teeth and we touched the skin of a shark, (it feels like sandpaper!). Do you know how sharks link to the USA Olympic swimming team? We investigated the rock pools and learnt about the life of a starfish, anemone, and hermit crab. The seals were very entertaining, but it was a bit too cold to be splashed by them. A fantastic day with lots of memories to include in our writing.
