Ships ahoy!

Year one at Sandygate had a wonderful trip to the seaside, a few weeks ago. The long coach trip to Brighton culminated with an excited chorus of “I can see the sea!” The children have been learning all about sea creatures and pirates in our topic ‘ships ahoy!’

So a trip to the SeaLife Centre was a wonderful opportunity for them to do a little bit more first-hand learning. The children watched the sharks and rays being fed and they had the opportunity to touch starfish. The tunnel under the water was a particular highlight for the children as they were able to see such large sea animals so close up! There were a huge number of interesting facts for the children to find out and this new found knowledge was used to help them complete their information booklets about their chosen sea creatures on their return to school. A quick trip to the beach was a perfect end to the day. Each child looked for and found a ‘perfect pebble’ to take home as a souvenir from their great day out. Thankfully the weather stayed dry and the children returned home full of voice on the coach!
