COVID-19 Lockdown activities!

As we aren't currently able to visit the schools, we have posted some activities below that may be fun to watch and do whilst home schooling and lockdown is taking place.

Getting out in nature provides a wonderful escape from stress, anxiety and negative thoughts. It has been long thought that swimming and playing at the beach has even more health benefits; historically doctors would recommend their patients go to the seaside to improve their various illnesses!  But how can you do this when we are in lockdown..................

Saltwater Creations aims to bring the Coast to the COVID-lockdown, to help you all to be at the beach - virtually!

We will post some videos and activities below for you all, and hopefully this will help towards creating positive physical and emotional wellbeing for you all,  even if you can't get to the beach in these times of adversity. 

Stay safe and hope to see you all soon!

 

Bring the Beach to your home in less that 10 minutes!


Join Jules and guest; Millie at this 10 minute beach art workshop below on You Tube.

Meet Millie and Charlie!

We have talked about them lots in the workshop and how they love the beach.  You have all learnt to surf on Charlie's surfboard too!  Now it's time to meet them, and see them making their own lockdown pebbles!

Millie also used this 'live stream' experience for her home learning, so enjoy watching us all learn how to use the live internet too!

Please note: This is posted on Facebook Watch Party so will need parents to click on the link through their Facebook page.

Scavenger Hunt

Join us on a beach scavenger hunt to see what we found on our lockdown walk.

Can you name some of the things that we found?

Some things shouldn't have been on the beach. Can you spot which ones?

See the gallery below

What is it on Aldwick beach?

Do you know what the pictures below are of?

You can see this at low tide on the beach near Bognor Regis.  It's a great place to find really big crabs! But what is it?

Find out here!

 

Listen to the sea 

Take some quiet time to relax and just sit, listen and watch the sea below, on a little video we made. 

Perhaps play it twice, and the 2nd time close your eyes and imagine thatyou are there!

 

Do you know what story this picture is from?

This is one of Saltwater Creation's favourite stories.

Why not sit and listen to Justin reading this to you!
