Year 3 David Attenborough Class

Sir David Frederick Attenborough born 8 May 1926) is an English broadcaster, biologist, natural historian and author.

Our topic this term is Island Life

Geographers and explorers estimate that there are over one million islands on earth! In this unit, we will be learning about the islands of the world, how they are formed, what life is like on some islands, as well as some of the threats to people’s lives and their unique cultures. We will explore how islands range hugely in shape, size, location and climate but that they are all surrounded by water. We will need to be geographers and cartographers as well as artists and musicians. As almost one in ten people on earth live on an island, let’s explore what some islands are like across the globe! Can you imagine what life would be like to live on a small island?
