Grab your wetsuit. We’re going deep into an underwater world of incredible coral and mysterious sea creatures. Head to your local aquarium and learn about life in the ocean. Can you pick a favourite fish, plant or animal? What do real divers get up to below the surface? Create a fishy story about exploring an amazing underwater world. Time to go a little deeper into our seas. Make a model deep sea submarine that can withstand great pressure and travel to the deepest, darkest places on Earth. Make sure you test it first. What are those bright lights in the distance? It’s a group of bioluminescent sea creatures. Look closely and create a colourful, 3-D art exhibition when you rise to the surface. Flippers on? Snorkel ready? Let’s head into the Blue Abyss.
The Children in Year 4 were asked to create a promotional video based on The Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Queensland, Australia. In this, they were asked to add not only information about what it is and where it is but also to consider what is threatening this natural habitat. Whilst considering how this area is being harmed, could the children also suggest ways that we could all help to protect the world's largest coral reef system?
