Marking World Oceans Day

Tuesday 8th June was World Oceans Day. More than 140 countries take part and pledge to consider the importance of our oceans. Almost three quarters of the Earth's surface is water and it holds thousands of plant and animal species. Many people around the world rely on the ocean for their livelihoods. We marked this day in school by exploring the importance of our oceans and the many threats that they face. In Kingfishers, we discovered that one of the biggest threats to our oceans is plastic - 12 million tonnes of plastic end up in the oceans every year and much of this is non-biodegradable. We were inspired by Police officers in Wales who re-use their riot shields to build greenhouses instead of sending them to landfill. We came up with a range of further possible uses for non-biodegradable plastic products.

 

Owls looked at a PowerPoint about the day and named the oceans of the world and talked about ways we need to save the oceans. Then we coloured pictures of the ocean and made a save the ocean display - with net, fish, jelly fish etc. The children created signs for the display.

 

Robins reminded themselves of our world oceans and discussed everything they give us and how we can damage them. Swallows thought about the importance of the oceans and created some beautiful art in response to their discussions and learning.
