A new range of resources for schools to introduce children to shipping and the lives of seafarers has been launched.  Written by teachers and produced by the seafarers’ charity Apostleship of the Sea (AoS), in association with Ten Ten Theatre, the resources are aimed at KS2 and KS3 students.



The downloadable resources include lesson plans and assemblies that are both easy to use and engaging for students.  Powerpoints and teacher guidance notes are included.



Each lesson follows a simple structure and includes clear objectives and learning outcomes. It has been designed around the national curriculum and gives students the opportunity to learn about the world of shipping and seafarers and how the Apostleship of the Sea is helping to support seafarers worldwide.  



John Green, AoS Director of Development said, ‘the subject of the sea and the lives of seafarers touches many aspects of the national curriculum and is a fundamental part of this country’s heritage’, he continued ‘these attractive and engaging resources, written by teachers, will capture the excitement of the sea and the lives of seafarers, a world that is often so close to children from seaside trips and ferry crossings, but relatively unknown to them.’



The resources were produced in association with Ten Ten Theatre. Ten Ten aim to communicate the richness of the Church’s experience in human relationships and engaging with the modern world. Martin O’Brien, Artistic Director of Ten Ten, said he was ‘proud’ to be collaborating with the Apostleship of the Sea and ‘bringing closer this hidden world and work of the church within it to children and young people.’
