Our fish have been released into the River Tyne. We are sad to see them go but have really enjoyed seeing them develop from eggs to fry.
Everyone was given a bag with some fish. Some of us were a bit anxious that the bags might burst or that we might drop them. They all got to the river safely though! Phew!
We had a release ceremony planned and it all went smoothly – banners, signs, a lifecycle story, a poem and also a ‘rap’. Thank you to the adults who came along to join in with this event.
Amy took the fish into the river. She had to release them slowly to allow them to become used to the colder water. It all went well although one or two seemed reluctant to leave the bucket.
