Mia, Abby and Kerry made a drama about what they learned from the visit from Nicola Balfour. Most of the lines they said were from cards that Nicola kindly lent to them so they could remember  what fish was good . For they also mentioned a tiny bit about having a balanced diet but they really focused in on fish. They also talked about how the fish ends up on your plate. How it starts of being caught, then being harvested, then transported, then at the fish market  were factory’s by it, then processing , then to the fish mongers and then you  by it and cook it for you tea and that’s  how the fish gets your plate. They also discussed what fish go under the categories  white fish, oily fish and shell fish.
