getting out while remaining in

The vast majority of us are now working from home, and in many instances physically removed from our engagements with the world’s oceans and seas which provide a shared point of contact for us all. As such, we’ve drawn together a collection of online resources and activities that you may find useful for teaching, a momentary diversion and/or a source of entertainment/education for home schooling. If you have any suggestions for further resources please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
