Whilst participation in the programme is free, we want to see how you and your class are getting on with their fishkeeping journey. As part of the terms of participation in Fishkeeper Fry we expect participating schools to keep in touch with us weekly by sharing photos of your class engaging in the programme, classwork based on the lesson material provided, any additional activities you have undertaken as a class around your aquarium and updates as to how your class is getting on with the programme. This is an important part of the programme and helps demonstrate to us and our supporters that your class is following the programme as it has been designed. This feedback might include photos of your class engaging in the tasks (subject to the signing of the relevant parental consent forms), completed task sheets and activities to include the following:
Fishkeeper of the Week – Each week we need classes to appoint a Fishkeeper of the Week. This might be the child who has shown the most commitment to the project and looking after their aquarium that week or a child who has completed some outstanding work as a result of that week’s lesson. We will feature a photograph on our Fishkeeper Fry Instagram page from a participating school each week from the submissions sent to us.
Drawing/Worksheet of the Week – We encourage you to get the children to record their learning experiences in the form of a drawing and will be selecting a Drawing of the Week each week which will be posted on our Fishkeeper Fry Instagram so you can view what other schools involved are producing.
Aquarium of the Week– We will feature an aquarium each week from the photos we receive on our website. Please provide us with information alongside the pictures to help us choose which school will be showcased each week.
Please note for all of the above, if the images you send to us include children, it is your responsibility to ensure that the correct consent forms have been filled out allowing us to use the images on our website and social medias. Maidenhead Aquatics will not accept responsibility if incorrect consent has been obtained.
