‘Turtle Week’ was a busy, fun and turtley exciting week in KS2. We are very grateful to Miss Katharine and Mrs. Amy from DEMA and Miss Jackie from Amanyara Nature Discovery Centre for sharing their vast knowledge and for creating such a wonderful collection of fun and exciting turtle activities!
“I felt the turtle activities were really fun and made me really happy,” said BD.
“I learnt that leatherbacks have collapsible lungs so that they can dive deep,” commented ED.
“I enjoyed Turtle Week because it raises awareness of the turtle situation, especially here in the T.C.I.,” added JW.
We started ‘Turtle Week’ first thing Monday morning with a superbly informative talk by Miss Katharine Hart (DEMA) about the current situation of turtles in the world, their life cycle and the different species. Then after break the children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 took part in a round-robin of activities on the benches and field with Miss Katharine, Mrs. Amy (DEMA) and Miss Jackie (Amanyara.)
