Something fun!

We are going to set you another project for the week, focused around the theme of ‘the ocean’.

Have a go at creating a collage of the ocean. This can be on a piece of paper or 3D! You can paint, draw, use coloured paper; the possibilities are endless!

Here are some ideas:


Think about the animals that could be in the collage (link this to your research from last week), the types of plant life you may see in the ocean, using different shades and textures to create the patterns of the ocean!



Keep in touch – remember any work you have completed can be emailed to us to be marked. This can be typed work or a photo.


Stay safe.
