Global Learning Programme

FREE World Oceans Day resource

Teach your pupils about the importance of life below water with our literacyscience and geography resources for Key Stages 2, 3 and above.

On 8 June, countries around the world celebrate World Oceans Day. This year’s theme is  
‘Our Oceans, Our Future’, with a particular focus on encouraging solutions to plastic pollution, and preventing marine litter for a healthier ocean and a better future.  

The Global Learning Programme (GLP) in England has developed literacygeography  
and science lesson ideas and activities for Key Stages 2, 3 and 4 to support pupils’ learning  
around the concepts of sustainability, poverty and development, and interdependence. The resource also supports the teaching of SMSC, citizenship, art, and design and technology (D&T), and will enable teachers to stimulate pupils’ critical thinking skills on global issues linked to sustainable development.
