This unit offers several opportunities for developing further work on islands. It can be used to extend or as an alternative to aspects of the 'Island Home' unit of the QCA scheme of work. In particular it offers children and teachers a route into some basic physical geography ideas, using practical activities and story to make this more easily accessible to Year 2 and 3 children. It is also possible to use some of the materials presented on the CD-Rom to link the work with other Key Stage 1 geography activities, including Barnaby Bear goes to Brittany, or as geography-focused literacy hour resources.
