What will students see and do?

Take your students to a classroom with an ocean view!

They’ll walk in awe across Shark Walk, explore Atlantic Coasts, discover Ray Lagoon, stroll through an ocean tunnel and be dazzled by the UK’s largest living coral reef.

And that’s not all. SEA LIFE London Aquarium offers even more zones to explore, including Rainforest Adventure, Seahorse Kingdom and Conservation Cove.

SEA LIFE offers a variety of creature talks daily (times, locations and subject matter may vary). Find out what a penguin eats for breakfast, or why the ominous-looking Sand Tiger Shark is often referred to as the Labrador of the sea.

Teaching resources provided

Free curriculum-linked lesson resources are ready to download and use as pre- and post-visit activities, designed to prepare students for their visit and embed learning.

Ocean Conservation
These lessons will encourage students to appreciate the importance of protecting our oceans, raise awareness of their own relationship with the ocean and appreciate how their daily actions can positively or negatively affect the marine environment.

The Natural World
These lessons will support students in identifying “creature features”, understanding creatures’ needs, and explore ocean, river and even rainforest habitats – making some new, colourful, and incredible friends along the way!
