Should whales be kept in captivity?
Today we would like you to think carefully about this question.
Watch this clip from News Round and do any of your own research on the internet. Discuss the question with a grown-up and decide how you feel about it. There is no right or wrong answer, this is your opinion!
Last week in school we made mobiles like Alexander Calder's using sticks, string and coloured card cut into circles, a bit like the one you can see below.
We would like you to make your own mobile at home using sticks from the garden or park and any string or ribbon you can find. We would love your mobile to be sea creature themed. Use colourful paper or card and cut out different sea creatures, or use pictures you find in magazines or on the internet. You could even draw your favourite sea creatures and cut them out!
Today we would like you to stretch out and relax with this under the sea yoga workout.
