    I am doing Under the Sea with my Year 3 class and wondered if anyone could recommend any quality narrative texts to use? I am hoping to link it with finding nemo in the end and do some story writing based around that.

    Although not a text, Endless Ocean for the Wii is a brilliant game you could use (think it costs about £30). You take on the role of a diver and go underwater to explore different oceans, get to take pictures of rare sea life and undertake various tasks. I'm going to use it with my Y2s next term, I can't wait!!!!!

    You can introduce it as a whole class and set the scene but then different groups of children can complete different tasks / mini projects. Found this blog which has some good ideas although it's from a Year 5 class:
    http://tbarrett.edublogs.org/2009/09/19/using-endless-ocean-wii-in-the-classroom-weeks-1-and-2-dive-and-discover/ There's now an Endless Ocean 2 which looks even better. You can have some class dives and also different group dives, research into different sea life, interviews with the divers, lots of story writing ideas.
