Our Swans, Nightingales and Eagles will do many experiments in order to understand the layers of the ocean; students will learn the importance of the oceans for our survival and will also learn in detail about different types of invertebrates, fish, sharks, whales, dolphins and other mammals of the sea.

Our younger children will learn many new songs and experience many textures in our Sensory and Art area/time; they will have a lot of fun getting familiar with many animals of the ocean and their characteristics.
