Thurrock Island | Week 5

Activity 5 – Sea Plants & Corals

Good morning and welcome to Week 5. Our task for you this week is to design some sea plants and corals for the underwater landscape in which the Merfolk live. What do you think it looks like under the water? Do you remember any sea plants from when you went to the beach? You can take inspiration from a coral reef or create something from your imagination.

Get creative with different medias, why not try a collage, a painting or something digital. It doesn’t just have to be 2D, why not try making something 3D this time?

To be in with a chance of having your corals and sea plants featured in the Thurrock Island storybook please scan or photograph your artwork and either upload a JPEG or PNG image of your artwork to the Thurrock Island Facebook group or email them to

You can draw straight from your imagination or feel free to use our downloadable colouring sheet as a guide. We are looking forward to seeing what you create.

Please share your artwork on social media using #ThurrockIsland
