Following the nationwide success of “Something Fishy” in schools last year, Monaghan Education Centre is 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
There are eight lessons on the web site that support the SESE programme. Teacher support material and information are available on the site as well as the interactive lessons for children. AND THEY ARE ALL FREE!
Throughout the year your pupils are asked to let us know how they are enjoying their participation in the Something Fishy programme by posting photographs, poetry, art work, videos etc. etc. on the new Something Fishy upload facility.
Later in the school year, when the pupils have completed their lessons, they 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 with them, including ‘kick sampling’ and ‘electric fishing’ as they judge the overall health of the river.
