This is a recap on what the children have been learning in school. The first is a simple recap (aimed more at Year 3) and has guided writing activity at the end. The Oak Academy aim this at KS1, so we advise the clips form the basis of their project.

Watch some or all of the lessons to help you understand the effects of pollution in our oceans.

Year 3’s please use the video lessons and Year 4 use these but for extra challenge – please create an A4 poster explaining the effects of pollution and how we can make changes in our everyday lives to reduce pollution entering our oceans/seas.

(1) Why are our oceans important?

In this Oak Academy lesson, we will be learning about the importance of our oceans. They are a huge part of our planet and we need to look after them. We will be gaining more understanding of the size of the oceans and how important they are to life on Earth.

Recap on where the oceans are and why they are important?

Activity: To make an information booklet. There is a matching and drawing activity in the clip.  




(2) Campaigning to protect the oceans – both Year 3 and 4

In this lesson we are going to be learning about how the plastic gets into the oceans and what we can do to help others reduce their plastic waste.



(3) Why are the oceans under threat?

In this lesson we will be learning all about different human activities which are threatening our oceans. We will start by identifying what human activity is and what types of things we are doing which are causing damage to our oceans. We will finish the lesson by looking at what damage we can already see in our oceans.
