We had the most amazing day at Blue Planet Aquarium!
We started the day with a classroom session where we learnt all about sea creatures – did you know that sand tiger sharks have around 350 teeth!! The session finished with us meeting a starfish – we were allowed to touch it as long as we were gentle.
Next we went to a divers show! We learnt how to communicate with the divers through the glass before they fed the sting rays and fish!
We headed through the under water tunnel and had scary sharks and huge sting rays swimming over the top of us!
After a quick break for dinner we explored the rest of the aquarium looking at all the exhibits before heading back to school.
All the Year 6 children are now fully back into the swing of the new academic year. It started in the best possible way, with a visit to Arthog. All of the children had a great time on each of the activities, working as a team and preparing themselves for the challenges that lie ahead. All of the staff who accompanied them from school and the Arthog instructors were incredibly impressed with not only their behaviour but also the way in which they supported each other throughout the week. Please see the photos below. A great time was had by all.
