This week’s topic: Feelings and Ocean Day

One of our golden rules at Lightwoods is:
‘We care for everyone and everything’.

We care about you.  How are you feeling? Draw a picture of you and write down words to describe how you have been feeling. What makes you feel happy? What makes you feel relaxed? What makes you feel anxious? What advice would you give to a friend if they were feeling sad?

Monday 8th June World Ocean Day. Click here,  there are lots of different videos you can watch where you can learn about the world’s oceans. 

  • Choose an ocean that has particularly interested you and complete a fact file or an information booklet about that ocean. You can include interesting facts and include some exciting illustrations too.
  • Create a poster highlighting what the population can do to protect the oceans of the world.
  • Write a report about an animal that lives in the ocean. Remember to include side headings like: appearance, habitat and diet. You could include an interesting facts box and illustrate your work too.
  • Create your own fantastical sea creature! Think about its appearance (colour, scales, fins), diet, special powers etc. Once you have created your creature you can do a detailed pencil drawing.
  • Write a letter as if you were the ocean. Ask the people to stop throwing rubbish in you and explain what dangers rubbish is causing to the sea creatures.
    Write a poem about the ocean. Remember poems do not have to rhyme. You could write an acrostic poem or a simile poem to name but a few!
