Our reception children have been painting blue whales and wrote some facts about them. We then used these to make a 15m long Whale Wall!

Blue Whales - Did you know?

- They can swim as fast as a car.
- They have a big mouth - but no teeth.
- They have flippers.
- An adult blue whale is 30m long.
- They come to the surface to breathe and they have a blow-hole on top of their heads.
