Grab your wetsuit. We’re going deep into an underwater world of incredible coral and mysterious sea creatures. During this term pupils will be learning about life in the ocean. What do real divers get up to below the surface? We will be investigating famous explorers and creating biographies based on them. Children will also be examining the effect of climate change on aquatic animals and their habitats.
This term our class novel is ‘The sound of Whales' by Kerr Thomson. We will be using this novel to develop our empathic skills via the EmpathyLab model.
