Jump on board our yellow submarine and join us 50 leagues under the sea as we explore the wonders of the ocean. With UKid school, your child will learn through the delightful and engaging Disney classic ‘Finding Nemo’. Wining an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature the visual images are a delight to be seen.
The story is about a clownfish, Marlin and his young son Nemo who have a special bond. One day Nemo drifts away from the safety of his teacher and is captured by a scuba diver who takes him on a boat, back to the Australian mainland. Nemo is put into a fish tank in a dentist’s office. Distraught, Marlin begins an epic journey to be reunited with his son. Along the way Marlin makes a firm friend in Dory a bright blue Tang fish with a very short-term memory.
Your child will travel with Marlin as he meets jelly fish, sharks, turtles and many more interesting sea creatures. This story teaches your child numerous scientific facts about the oceans and the creatures that inhabit our seas. It also teaches moral values – the importance of friendship, keeping safe, working together as a team and never giving up.
This is a classic favourite story and animation with generations of children across Britain. It provides many learning opportunities and will expand your child’s perspective as they learn about the Barrier Reef and far away shores. Join us in the deep blue sea as we help Marlin to find Nemo.
Nemo is a young and inexperienced Clown Fish who gets separated from his father. We follow his journey to be reunited.
Marlin is Nemo’s father who is desperately trying to find Nemo.
Dory is a Tang fish with a forgetful memory. She helps Nemo’s father – Marlin to be reunited with Dory
Luna the Mermaid This magical mermaid will help us learn the secrets of the seas.
The oceans and the wildlife within them, cover two thirds of the earth’s surface. Sea plants produce 70% of the oxygen we breathe, more than all the rainforests put together. The oceans provide us with food, employment, sports and leisure. This fragile eco system is under threat and that affects us all. As caring moral citizens your child will learn of the importance of the seas, and the life within them for us and for generations to come.
In English, your child will become familiar with the story and characters of Finding Nemo developing key words and phrases to support your child throughout the topic.
In Science we learn about animals with shells and carry out a simple but powerful experiment that shows the affects of pollution and acidity in the oceans. We also build on prior floating and sinking work and extend pre-existing knowledge to develop an understanding of buoyancy. We carry out an experiment which explains why sharks do not sink. These experiments encourage critical thinking.
Geography provides your child with the opportunity to learn the five oceans of the world. We look at distinguishing features of each water mass, its proximity to continents whilst providing many opportunities for your child to use their speaking and listening skills.
In Mathematics we explore mathematical patterns through seaside objects. Children will be able to identify patterns of objects, shape and colour whilst developing their vocabulary for sea side objects found in Britain. Children will be encouraged to put sentences together using this new and expanding vocabulary.
表演艺术课上，我们将为孩子们带来有关海洋主题的舞蹈和音乐作品，比如，英国小学里孩子们都会哼唱的‘Commotion in the Ocean’. 我们还将学习来自甲壳虫乐队的名曲——Yellow Submarine. 在这样的旋律中，仿佛我们正置身海底，在经历一场冒险。
Through Performing Arts we enrich your child’s learning through dance and music celebrating the seas. ‘Commotion in the Ocean’ is a hugely popular song, sang throughout primary schools in Britain. We also learn the famous Beatles song – Yellow Submarine as we have adventures in the water.
In History we compare and contrast the seaside holidays of the Victorians, to a trip to the beach today. Do you know your shuggy boat from your bathing machine? Worry not, all will be explained in this exciting subject.
In PSHE we learn more about people who help us – the Royal National Life Boat Institution. A respected British volunteer organisation that has been protecting our coast lines and keeping people and vessels safe since it was first established on the 4 Marc 1824.
Children will enjoy this fascinating topic whilst further developing their speaking and listening skills. Your child will be challenged to formulate sentences, answer questions and speak fluently in a positive and encouraging atmosphere. We will expand their knowledge and English language skills, as well as encouraging each child to think about the moral issues that the topic raises.
