Thanks to Miss Orr for sending us this collection of P6′s work on Clyde in Classroom!
Here the children have received the fish eggs and are placing them into the hatchery. This marks the start of our journey to keep the eggs alive and help them thrive in their environment before releasing them into the local river.
The children are working collaboratively to learn about the different sections of a river. Here they have to place the correct heading with the image of the river and what happens in this section. From this image you can see the girls are working on the tributary of a river.
Below are the completed sections that the children learned about.
We used materials from outside in the playground and our forest to create our own fish designs.
We learned about the water cycle. We created a big book of the cycle and completed and experiment to see what happens when clouds get too heavy.
We learned a lot about the life cycle of the brown trout. We created a big book about the brown trout and can explain to others the different stages the trout go through.
We have looked at the different parts of a brown fish. It has allowed us to correctly name the different fins the fish have and identify what these parts of their body help them to do.
We also have been learning about pollution and how this can affect the lives of many fish and different creatures in our water.
Here is a picture of our topic wall. It has all the information we have learned on it so far.
In Room 9 we have released our fish into the wild. We had a fantastic morning doing this in the snow and know that our fish are now making their way to the River Clyde so that they can grow to become adult trout.
