Under the sea and saving the planet

Greetings Penguins!

This week we started our Under the Sea topic and  have been learning about sea creatures, especially whales.

What facts have you learnt about whales?

There are lots of different kinds of whales; how many can you name

In our story Whale Magic the mummy and baby humpback whales had been swimming for a long time to try and get away from an oil slick.

Can you explain what an oil slick is to your adult? 

Oil slicks are terrible for the environment. What ways can we help take care of our world

On Tuesday we will be going on our trip to Vauxhall City Farm. If you haven’t yet handed in the permission slip and money for the trip please do 🙂 There are also a few more spaces for adults to come on the trip with us so if you would like to please let me or Ms Atkinson know on Monday. At the moment the weather forecast is predicating warm but not too hot temperatures (23 degrees c) and the possibilities of showers so suncream, sun hats and a light raincoat would all be a good idea 🙂 

It will be Yellow Team‘s turn for Show and Tell on Friday. Have a wonderful weekend full of exploring, reading, writing, sleeping, eating, singing, dancing, playing, talking, homework and of course don’t forget to comment on the blog!

I look forward to seeing you again on Monday! Please bring trainers or plimsolls for outdoor PE! 🙂

  1. Whales are mammals.
    The blue whale is the largest animal in the world.
    Whales breathe air.

    Killer whale
    Blue whale
    Fin whale
    Grey whale
    Sei whale
    Humpback whale
    Minke whale

    Oil slick is oil floating on the sea.
    Don’t throw rubbish into the sea because the fishes might get stuck and die.



  2. Blue whales reach 100 feet long and weigh up to 150 tonnes. They are mammals so they breathe through a blowhole and feed milk to their babies which are called calfs. They can swim underwater without coming up for air for up to 90 minutes. Examples of whales are Blue whale, humpback whales, and killer whales. Whales live in large groups called pods.
