Adventures beyond the classroom

Learning at St. David's Primary extends beyond the classroom, and teachers take advantage of the wealth of resources available to them, including the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo. Following a visit to the Aquarium, Ms Toyra Woolridge's Primary 3 students were invited to reflect on their experience.

“At the Aquarium I saw a shark with a sore nose and a tree kangaroo sleeping on a branch, snakes, water monitors, tortoises, and otters swimming nearby. I learned lots of things I didn't know. That's why I like the Aquarium so much.” Dakarai Grant.

“I observed a miniature catfish. I saw a little lizard on a huge rock. I saw a python wrapped around a stick. I saw a tree kangaroo sitting on a tree. I saw tortoises eating lettuce and apples. I saw a miniature monkey sitting on a fence. The animal that I liked was the octopus because it has tentacles. I saw sea turtles in an epic pool. I saw a shark with a sore nose, and big pink bright flamingos. The whole class got to do three life cycles. I saw a very big lizard. I saw all those things at the Aquarium.”

Shia Smith.

“My class went on a visit to the Aquarium and I saw seals with an empty tank! Nobody saw the crocodile because it was at the bottom of his pool. We saw a flamingo standing in the puddle scraping his back with his beak! Then we saw so many animals in different cages. Then we saw the bear-cat! And after that, we saw the wallaby. Then we saw the Galapagos tortoises. One was a girl and one was a boy. We saw a sore nose shark because it kept bumping into the reef. Then we had recess, and then we ate lunch before going back to school.

St. David's Primary P3 class observed a variety of different creatures during their recent trip to the Aquarium, as recorded by Rachel Mello-Cann.
