8th June – Children’s Art Week and World Oceans Week

In your home learning pack – mindfulness colouring (ocean theme). Create your own mindfulness colouring sheet for someone else in your family to colour in, remember to add in lots of detail. – link to a colour changing seahorse activity you can use crayons or pens –not just paints.  fasteners in your pack. You can make any ocean creature using this technique.

Lots of ideas for simple ocean crafts (or create your own ocean creature from recycled cardboard and plastic)
Create a tweet that would encourage people to care for the oceans and not pollute them.
Use an empty box and create your own under the ocean scene (diorama)

Due to the number of calls and messages we have received about Google classroom not working with i-pads we have produced this guide.  Our ICT coordinator has produced this and has tried accessing Google Classroom on both newer and older i-pads successfully.  Please follow this guide when working with i-pads.
