Something Fishy Project 2017/2018
Following the great success of the “Something Fishy” Project last year, Clare Education Centre, together with IFI,
is now inviting schools to participate in this year’s programme which is aimed at 5th and 6th classes in Primary school.
Check out www.somethingfishy.ie
The series of 8 lessons is based on the SESE Curriculum. Lesson plans are prepared and easily downloadable. The lessons are a gift for the teacher, the way they are presented and fun for the children.
The pupils, later in the school year, will participate in a supervised fieldtrip to your local river where they will learn about water quality, fish, the environment and angling. Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) officers will conduct different experiments, judging the overall health of the river. While encouraging safety and awareness they will demonstrate the importance of conservation and promote the anti pollution and anti litter message. They will show samples of fish life in the river by ‘electric fishing’ and they will promote angling, as a hobby and encourage fish, as a healthy food source.
To complete the programme your pupils, as a group, will be invited to present a digital project based on any topic learned from their “Something Fishy” experience. Awards will be given at local and national level for the best presentations of work done.
If you would like to participate in the Something Fishy Programme, during this school year, please complete the attached form and return it to Clare Education Centre.
