Blue Planet Aquarium
On Tuesday, students and staff at the lower school went for a school trip at Blue Planet Aquarium in Ellesmere Port. We chose to go here as our Autumn topic is 'The Deep Blue Sea.' The students enjoyed seeing and learning about all different types of sea creatures including Starfish, Seahorses, Tortoises and Sharks (especially Betty the Shark!)
Our younger students enjoyed a classroom session learning about 'What lives under the water?' Did you know that an Octopus has nine brains?
Our older students enjoyed a classroom session learning about 'Jawsome Sharks' They learnt lots of different facts about various sharks including the Sharks at the aquarium.
After our classroom sessions, we enjoyed watching a diving show where divers swam around the tank and fed the different fish in there and the Sting Rays. Our students loved their trip out stating that their favourite part was seeing the different types of sharks. They were all FIN-TASTIC!
