The 'Something Fishy' Programme


Something Fishy is an educational programme aimed at Primary School students in Fifth and Sixth Classes. It informs and educates students on fish, water, angling and the environment. The Programme was originally developed by Blackrock Education Centre and Inland Fisheries Ireland; this team created lesson plans and activity sheets based on the 'Life Cycle of the Salmon' theme. This has since been developed, with a number of resources and lesson plans available on the Something Fishy website. The Programme is cross-curricular, but particularly relates to objectives of the Geography and Science Curricula in Senior Primary Classes. 

As part of the Programme, Inland Fisheries Ireland staff visit participating schools and facilitate a visit to a local river for the participating teacher/s and class/es. An optional project may be done by the participating class/es following the river visit.
