The trout, eggs eyes are a little bigger than yesterday and we have had a few visitors that came and had a look. One of the eggs look a bit white but the rest are fine. But we are not sure if we should take it out so we’ve left it in the fish tank.

The trout eggs have had another visitor this morning. Each day they are getting a little bit bigger. Every day after break and lunch every one gathers around the tank to look at the eggs. As you can guess we are all very excited about the fish.

Sadly 3 of are eggs died today. They were found this morning. But it did not stop the attraction. 5B came up this afternoon to look at the trout eggs and at chess club everyone was really interested in the eggs and some people were so interested they did not want to play chess so they could look at the trout eggs especially the fallen one which we named Janes Pond!!!

This week I've also been to Parson Street primary school and South Street primary school in Bedminster. I've given assemblies, explaining the project to all the pupils in each school and encouraging students to think about freshwater and saltwater habitats. In each assembly I have shown this wonderful short film from the One World One Ocean which celebrates the wonders of our ocean with stunning facts about the connectivity of water on our planet.

I've also met some great students, all of whom are very enthusiastic about looking after their trout eggs. I took in my new friend, the yet-to- be-named, big trout caught in 1932 at Blagdon lake,

and discovered some fabulous artists!
