Lessons from the National Marine Aquarium - for free starting 15th Jan, then every week for 7 weeks!

Every Friday for the next 7 weeks the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth will be delivering free live lessons from their Aquarium via YouTube.

Each week there will be two sessions:

  • The first 'Deep Science' (1pm to 1.20pm GMT) - aimed at KS2 - will see their schools' team using aquarium exhibits and their AquaLab to explore the science behind the animated ocean exploration tv series 'The Deep' (CBBC @12pm GMT on weekdays during lockdown).  Expect fascinating facts and real-time experiments, as well as ideas to follow up with at home!
  • The second will be 'Mermaid Tales' - aimed at Early Years - will air from 1.30pm to 1.45pm GMT.  You will be read a short story narrated by the aquarium's resident mermaid, Marina - perfect timing before an afternoon nap or gentle relaxing start to the afternoon.

Key themes for each week are as follows: 

  • 15th Jan – Underwater Volcanoes 
  • 22nd Jan – Creature Classification 
  • 29th Jan – Nautical Navigation 
  • 5th Feb – Ocean Mysteries 
  • 12th Feb – Megafauna 
  • 19th Feb – Life Cycles 
  • 26th Feb – Looking after the Ocean 

Visit the National Marine Aquarium YouTube Channel from 15th January for the live lessons.
