Geographers and explorers estimate that there are over one million islands on earth. They range hugely in size, location, habitat and climate, but all are surrounded by water. As one in six people in the world, and all of us at Dover Court, live on an island, the second Year 5 IPC topis this year set out to explore what some islands are like across the globe

The children worked hard to produce creative presentations about an island they have visited or one that they would like to visit in the future by using powerpoint, making books, photograph albums and 3D models to share their research with the class. There were island models with real plants and water, working electrical circuits and even an island made of cake! A great way to end the topic!
