Who wants to meet a real mermaid? Well you can during this session, where Marina our resident Mermaid will read a short story to everybody tuned in – perfect timing before an afternoon nap, or as a gentle, relaxing start to the afternoon.
The content of the lessons will also help children to feel part of the start of the global UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.
The live lessons will assist with home learning whilst also providing a chance for children and their parents and teachers to gain some of the wellbeing benefits that have been proven to come from watching aquatic life.
