“I can’t express how impressed I was with the whole organisation, resources and effort you all put in! You were fab at reading the children’s needs and made the session work around them. We all had a great time and learnt a lot!
Your teachers pack is great to use and I am using it to plan lessons to deepen and embed the children’s learning from the session”- Emeline Goodall, Teacher, Veryan School
WELCOME TO THE GREATEST CLASSROOM ON EARTH!
By combining pupil-led exploration with authentic educators and environmental protection with purposeful play Ocean School deepens youngsters’ connection with our ocean environments and lets them learn how to protect them in their own unique ways!
Each summer term we deliver Ocean School at a selection of beaches across Wales and England. We have room for 40 schools and 1200 students to visit each year, so drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org to be considered for 2020.
Read on to learn more about Ocean School and maybe take a few ‘ocean activist’ ideas to the beach with you this summer!
OCEAN SCHOOL IS…
Ocean School provides students of all ages with the opportunity to explore, investigate, protect and ENJOY their beaches. Empowering them to recognise and react to the threats that face OUR oceans in their own way.
From interactive biology in the coastal habitats and mini-ecosystems (presented in wonderful 3D in rock pools and strandlines) to the simple, yet vital citizenship lessons in hard work and collective action that a volunteer beach clean provides our beaches are literally the greatest classroom on earth.
