Under the Sea

Our new topic for Summer term is Under the Sea.

I am really looking forward to sharing some lovely stories and finding out facts about creatures that live in the sea.

Do you have a favourite sea creature?

Can you find out any interesting facts about them? I love turtles and was exceptionally lucky to swim with them last Summer. They are beautiful. gentle and graceful. Turtles have existed for 220 million years, lay their eggs on land and have a hard shell that protects them like a shield.

Please post your favourite creatures on our blog, I can’t wait to read them.

Have a look at our egg-ceptional entries to Highfield’s Easter Egg Competition 2018.

You all put lots of effort into your designs, I was egg-static.

Unfortunately, there could only be 1 winner and 2 runners up.

Congratulations to Liam, Faran and Charlie-Mae.
