Good morning Year 6 and welcome to another week of home learning.


I know quite a few of you are back at school this morning - I hope you're all enjoying being back, even though it feels different. Whether you're at school or at home today, we are all going to be taking part in World Ocean Day because there is nothing more important than...….saving the turtles!


Have a look at the website here:

Timetable for the day:

9:00am: World Ocean Day kick-off - Lizzie Daly will open the festival!

Join us with Lizzie Daly to get the day kicked off! We will learn how every second breath comes from the ocean via an animation, some Ocean breathing and movement exercise with Richie Norton and hear from others, including Pulau School in Pitcairn, celebrating World Ocean Day around the world!


9:30am: Rockpool Ramble at the National Marine Aquarium

Join NMA live from their fantastic Aquarium facility with a spot of rockpooling and exploring the Plymouth Sound zone. Ask questions and learn about the amazing animals that live in and around their local waters.


10:00am: Learn how to breathe like a dolphin

Sara Campbell will be hosting an amazing workshop teaching us how to connect with our inner dolphin and learning how freedivers, big wave surfers & underwater photographers have learned the art of breathing to help them do what they do in the ocean.


10:30am: One planet, one ocean webinar (need to pre-register)

A blend of online and offline activity, this session will introduce the concept of one world ocean and we'll explore the related global responsibilities, opportunities and threats being connected creates.

After lunch:

Choose two or three activities from the ocean creative zone to have a go at. There's lots to choose from, including story writing, art, science and yoga.

Alternatively, for a musical twist - there are some lovely pieces of classical music inspired by the sea you can listen to here:

I am a huge fan of 'Fingal's Cave'. I think it's really evocative - what do you think?


Whatever activities you choose to complete this afternoon - I hope you all have fun, and enjoy learning about how we are all connected to the oceans in so many important ways.
