Nursery Students Go Under The Sea

05 June 2014

Last week the Nursery students went to Changfeng Park to visit the Whale and Sea Lion Show and the Aquarium.

  • Nursery students at BISS Puxi visit the Changfeng Aquarium

Nursery children marvelling at all the under water creatures they've been learning about in class.

On Wednesday a very excited bus load of children made their way to Changfeng Park for the day.

We have been learning all about sea creatures in so many different ways in school. We’ve been listening to stories, looking at information books, listening to the sounds that whales make under the water to talk to each other, moving like fish and jellyfish to music, counting the tentacles on octopi, thinking about looking after the seas and oceans and labelling the different parts of crabs and fish and sharks.

As a culmination of all our work on under the sea creatures we went to see some real ones!

We were all captivated by the graceful and clever beluga whales and impressed at the tricks that the sea lions performed. We all then enjoyed a leisurely walk through the park to the aquarium.

Once inside there were so many animals to see. It was such a great opportunity for us all to see the creatures we have been learning about in school.

It was wonderful to hear the children excitedly telling each other about what they had seen, and remembering so many of the names of the underwater creatures.

Among the favourites, were the sharks, of course, and also the jellyfish, the penguins, the clownfish, and the angelfish. For one or two children, lunch was the highlight of the day when we discovered a huge minibeast!

As we returned to school the children asked if they could go back again the next day! It was great to see so much enthusiasm and curiosity about the amazing undersea environment.

A fabulous day out and a perfect finale to all the learning that has been taking place in Nursery over the past few weeks.
