Class 1 - Sealife Centre Trip - 23rd May 2017

Class 1's wait for their trip to the Sealife Centre had finally arrived. Excited children and adults I might add, were lining up on the playground to board the bus. Lots of chatter from the children, discussing what they can see in the fields and of course the baby rabbits on the Harwick roundabout.

We reached our destination, getting off the bus to glorious sunshine. The children, with their partners strolled off to the sea front where they looked across the sea and saw boats and wind turbines in the distance. Finally we arrived at the sealife centre where we met a young lady who took us to a room, she was very informative about lots of the creatures that live in the sea. The children stroked a starfish, what they did not realise was where they actually stroked the starfish on the top was it's bottom, the children thought this was hilarious. They also saw crabs and shells. 

Then it was time to walk round the large tanks looking at the small sharks, sting rays, seahorses and some really ugly fish. And not forgetting the big turtle, he sure was a magnificent sight the children were amazed how big he was. The seals were showing off their swimming skills , one was sunbathing with his nose in the air. 

Then it was lunch. The children then had time playing in the sand making mermaids, the boys were on deck looking for pirates ships in the distance but I think they had all sailed off to the Caribbean. "Come on me hearties called Mr Cawley it's time to board the bus for home".

What a great day was had by all!
