On Tuesday 19 June Mrs Meyerkort and Mrs Barclay took our lively Year Twos and several wonderful volunteer parents to AQWA in Hillarys Marina, to consolidate their learning about ocean creatures this term.

We were excited on the bus, sitting next to our friends in the fancy coach. When we arrived we got into our groups and headed off either to the displays, touch pool or underground to the amazing aquarium.

Wow, the size of the sting-rays and sharks was awesome! The sting-rays glided effortlessly around the water. We saw their gills and mouth parts up close. The sharks looked menacing with their big teeth. We were delighted to see all the fish as well.

The touch pool was so much fun. We got to touch sea cucumbers and starfish. Some of us got very wet too! Another favourite part was in the display area. We saw ghostly looking jellyfish and scary salt-water crocodiles.

All up it was a great learning adventure to be able to see real-life sea creatures in their ocean habitat.

Many of us hope to go again one day.
