For many people out there, parents in particular, lockdown has provided a new challenge...teaching. With most schools in Wales being closed to all expect the children of critical workers, and pupils considered vulnerable, lessons have moved from the classroom to the kitchen table.
However, it is not just traditional learning that has been affected by lockdown. Our Living Seas team would usually be delivering a whole range of educational activities to local children and holiday makers alike. From exploring the hidden world of rockpools, to spotting for dolphins and porpoises; our education events aim to increase your understanding and appreciation of the world around us, and the species that we are fortunate enough to share it with.
Until it is safe to do so, our education events are on hold. But this does not mean we have forgotten about them, or you!
- Dolphin Detective - Learn a little more about the world beneath the waves, and the lives of our beautiful, semi-resident bottlenose dolphins. https://youtu.be/8rww9oG9H98
- Bird Bonanza - Learn a more about how our sensational seabirds are able to take to the skies. https://youtu.be/cpMDntksyL4
With more sessions being adapted and recorded as lockdown continues, expect to see more content for your home schooling very soon!
You can keep an eye on our Marine Education Series here!
For those of you looking for additional resources for your mini Marine Biologists, we would recommend our activity/craft sheets. As well as those provided through Wildlife Watch, the junior branch of The Wildlife Trusts.
Don’t forget to sign up to 30 Days Wild, to do one wild thing a day throughout the month of June!
