Owls have been busy role playing different sea animals. We learnt how shoals of fish move around and why they swim so closely together. We also played a game where one child acted out a sea creature and the rest of the class had to guess what it was!
Year 1 used their creative skills to use recycled tubes to make octopuses. We learnt how octopuses protect themselves from predators and how enormous their brains are! We drew suckers on their eight tentacles and they now look super on display in our classroom!
