🐠🐑🦭 Aquarium Visit 🐠🐑🦭

P3/4 recently enjoyed a special trip to Exploris Aquarium in Portaferry, as part of their 'World Around Us' topic. During their visit they had a guided a tour from an Aquarist who told them all about the animals that can be found in Strangford Lough and Irish waters such as pollock, spider crabs and octopus. P3/4 even had the opportunity to hold and feel some in the touch tank. A firm favourite of the class however was the Seal Sanctuary. They spotted a seal with facial injuries and learnt that his name was Neptune and that he had been struck by a boat. P3/4 were very touched by his story and decided to adopt him to help pay for his care and recovery.  They will be receiving pictures and regular updates about him and his recovery in the Seal Sanctuary.
