Teach on the beach!

On 8 June, to mark the occasion of World Oceans Day, the students of the British International School of Stavanger in Norway attended class on the beach.

The students organised a great beach clean-up, followed by reflections and an analysis of what they found. They shared great knowledge when discussing different topics including plastic pollution, bioaccumulation and micro-plastic in everyday consumables.

The pupils also wrote poems about the sea, learned about the tides and listened to the sounds of different species under the water. The school arranged a drawing competition in line with World Oceans Day, where the winner would get his/her drawing on the school's World Oceans Day t-shirts.

The students had an exciting and educational day about the sea and everything that lives there. We encourage other schools and kindergartens around the world to do the same!
