This week, Year 2 had a glorious, sun-filled and action-packed trip to ‘The Blue Reef Aquarium’ in Tynemouth…

This visit linked many areas of our learning from this term; Science – where we have been learning about habitats; Literacy – where we have been writing our own diary extracts as animals from our ‘Flotsam’ text and Reading skills – where we have been using ‘coastal’ themed non-chronological reports to practise our VIPERS skills of inference and information retrieval.

Before our Aquarium fun started, we spent some time enjoying the glorious sunshine at Tynemouth Long Sands Beach and the local park…

Then, we enjoyed watching a fabulous seal show…

Finally, we spent some time exploring the aquarium and enjoyed a workshop – where we learnt about the different sea creatures and mammals found in the aquarium and their respective habitats of the coral reef, Amazon rain forest, rock pools and the ocean…we even got to explore some real ‘mermaids purses!’
