Good morning everyone, we hope you’re all well and have been doing well and staying safe! Thank you to everyone who keeps sending us in work and pictures of things you’ve been up to, it’s amazing to see how you are getting on!

For today’s ocean themed activity it may take a few more bits and pieces but hopefully if you have the tools you’ll be able to come up with something magical! If you have paper, paint/ pens, and an empty egg carton why not try to make an ocean scene inside an egg carton? You will be able to decorate the outside of the egg carton like a treasure chest and make a wonderful scene on the inside of your egg carton using any other materials or shells that you have:
