South Caicos School of Field Studies visit

Ahead of our upcoming local animal themed ‘Dolphin Week’, it was great that on Wednesday, the School of Field Studies (SFS) from South Caicos came in to teach and tell us all about them. There were all different types of activities for different personalities, soccer for active people, trivia with rewards for those with a sweet tooth, origami for crafty types and clay modelling and swimming in water for experimental, scientific types.

Two of one of the Year 5’s favourite activities were marine animal trivia and four corners. The four corners was based on dolphins echo-location. The children also had to identify dolphins by their significant tail features, observing closely markings, scars and curves.

SFS helped us learn about dolphins without drowning us in facts. We loved having the students from SFS because they learnt alongside us instead of just reciting facts. I believe they are wonderful to work with us every year, sometimes more than once, with prepared PowerPoint presentations and preparing themselves for a tornado of kids to hit them! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
