Year 2 Trip to Brighton Sea Life Centre
On Wednesday, Year 2 ventured to Brighton’s Sea Life Centre. When we arrived, the lovely staff gave us all a secret, Halloween mission - we had to become detectives and find all the spooky, hidden letters around the Centre. Once we’d found them all, we had to work together to unjumble the letters and reveal a secret spell. The children were brilliant at this and their teamwork and perseverance was rewarded with a packet of sweets each from the staff! Despite the children loving their secret mission, they were all so excited to see the marine life up close; they ‘ooo’ed and ‘ahh’ed as we walked around the tanks and marvelled at creatures like the bopping nettle jellyfish and the inquisitive octopus.
The children (and Miss Able!) were fascinated to learn that male seahorses are the only male species on the planet that birth young. The children were also gobsmacked when they learnt that an ant can carry twenty times its body weight!
