Each month, we get the Primary Planet magazine. What a coincidence that there was a whole page article all about the salmon! It was great to recognise the names – alevins, fry, parr, smolt and Grilse!!
In science, we learned all about the lifecycle of the frog. We also learned about the otter and the minibeast the otter eats.
We have a vocabulary wall in our classroom. We certainly learned lots of new vocabulary when doing the something fish project!
In our school, we have a large noticeboard full of information what we have learned by doing the something fishy project. The Juniors, love reading the information too!
We learned all about the water cycle. In pairs we then created collages in Art representing the water cycle….. evaporation, condensation, precipitation!
We enjoyed using our IT skills to write about the life cycle of the salmon using Microsoft Word. We then drew lovely diagrams explaining the life cycle.
We mixed salt and water. The salt dissolved in the water. We then left the bowl on the window sill for 5 days. All the water evaporated off and all that was left in the bowl was ……. salt!!
We really enjoyed examining the minibeasts from the river bed!
We were very excited when Owen and his team visited from Inland Fisheries Ireland. First of all Owen went through a powerpoint presentation with us. It was great to recap on all that we had covered from our something fishy
