To support the Recount Writing and Report Writing genres, Year 2’s (Rooms 6 and 7) will be attending an excursion to AQWA.
AQWA is a very visual experience; students will be surrounded by living marine animals on an underwater journey. On this journey they will also have the opportunity to experience other visual media such as; signage; underwater footage shown in our feature exhibits: DANGER zone and Coral Reef, magnifying glasses and DVD presentations.
