- Has anyone been river or sea fishing? What was your biggest catch? What about the one that got away?

Has anyone been whale watching, or swam with dolphins?

What about snorkelling and swimming with the fishes?

Does anyone keep a goldfish at home, or won one in the fair? What about tropical fish?


Can anyone think of a rhyme about fish? eg One two three four five, once I caught a fish alive. Six, seven, eight, nine, ten,Then I let him go again.

To see what he could see, see, see

But all that he could see, see, see

Was the bottom of the deep blue sea, sea, sea…
