As part of our Blue Abyss topic, we have found out about Morgan the orca, held in captivity at Seaworld's Loro Parque in Tenerife. The children have written some fantastic persuasive letters to travel agents to convince them to stop selling tickets to Loro Parque in the hopes that this will lead to Morgan's release.
We also created these persuasive videos to spread the message about Morgan. I'm sure you will agree that year 4 have done a fantastic job using iMovie to make these heartbreaking videos. Get your tissues ready!
