Our Classroom

Advent 1 Topic Overview

Island of Adventure

The children are to imagine they are part of an environmentalist expedition and have come across an uninhabited, previously undiscovered island. This island is the most beautiful, natural place they have seen and is home to many species of flora and fauna unknown to man. Where in the world would they want the island to be located? They will use atlases, globes or interactive maps on the Internet to decide upon a position for their Islands.  They will discuss the geographical features/landmarks shown on these maps. They will then decide the wide range of flora and fauna that will flourish on the Island and design a new species that lives there. These species will need protecting by an organisation, such as an environmental agency.  They will then design the identity of a new environmental agency, including the name and logo. The Island will be open to visitors so the children will design posters to attract them , decide on the activities available to do, places to eat, places to visit etc.
