What BIG people & little people say...

What a sharktastic day the children in Y2 at Ducklington Primary School had. As part of their science and geography home learning about ocean habitats and why the ocean is so important to us all, children visited the website of their book penpal Leisa Stewart-Sharpe and tried out some of her fun activities. Many were tempted by the dangerous look of the toilet roll shark; some made the scuttling crab and they had fun answering the ocean themed riddles and collecting the treasure from around their home. One child, in true Leisa style, dressed as a shark too! The children then wrote to Leisa, telling her about their learning and asked her some interesting questions about the ocean. Thank you so much to Leisa for her inspired makes and helping make a day of home learning fun. We can't wait to read the Blue Planet ll book once we are all back in the classroom.

I really enjoyed the tasks and I'm looking forward to making the crab. I also loved your shark costume!

Blue Planet II is certainly a gem in the ocean! I recently had the pleasure of teaching this lesson to my class. After listening to a short extract read by Leisa from the book, the children were given a short task to make a creature from the depths of the ocean - in this case, a Shark! The instructions were simple and easy to follow, and the children (and staff) were captivated by the story and the beautiful illustrations! I would thoroughly recommend this delightful book; bringing real life facts about our natural world alive through story telling really immerses the reader into the wonderful world that is our Planet.
