Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

We have goldfish!

What a great first term it has been! We have had so much fun learning many new things!

At the beginning of the term, we noticed an empty fish tank in our classrooms. We have been waiting and waiting for our teachers to buy some fish to put into the tank (they have been very busy creating engaging and exciting learning opportunities for us all!).

So as a class team we visited Pets at Home to choose our own class fish!

1 fish for Goldcrests and 1 fish for Wagtails.

We walked beautifully through the town centre and along the paths making sure we stayed with our adult at all times. Once we reached Pets at Home, we were greeted by the manager who spoke to us about fish and how to take good care of them.











We were all very excited to choose our fish (it was so hard there were many colours and sizes but in the end we all decided on the same fish). We learnt many new facts - one of which, the fish we saw were only swimming in the big blue ocean yesterday and today there were in the store ready to come back to school with us!

After our important talk about fish, we explored and saw many other animals. It was so exciting but we had to be very quiet as we did not want to disturb them shhh!







Once we got back to school, we had to follow many important instructions given by the store to ensure our fish were calm and safe. We saw our teachers put in food for the fish and after time put the fish into our tank! Our fish tank had fish!

It was great to see the fish both being friendly and swimming together. At the end of the day we said bye to the fish and we are excited to greet them every morning!

Goldcrests fish is orange and is called is Goldie and Wagtails fish is white and is called Wiggly.
