Resources for Primary school teachers

The marine environment provides excellent opportunities for building stimulating lessons, whether teaching in the classroom or out-of-classroom experiences. With a little imagination, almost all areas of the National Curriculum can be covered. The resources available here are aimed at Key Stage 2 but can easily be adapted for use in KS1 and KS3.

All MarLIN teaching resources are free to download and use.

The MarLIN team is happy to offer advice to teachers who wish to incorporate the marine environment in their lessons, or run shore visits. We also offer training courses for teachers.
