Have a go at an Island inspired Yoga Session

Today's yoga is inspired by the Disney film 'Moana.' This story is set on a Polynesian Island. If you are not sure where these islands are located, see if you can find out. While you are taking part in this session, see how many physical geographical features are mentioned.

Geography- Anywhere Island Project Week 5

Your Island has become very famous! Everyone wants to visit to get a glimpse of the rare species you have discovered. People are offering you a lot of money to do this. Suddenly your phone hasn’t stopped ringing, you’re getting hundreds of emails, DMs, facebook messages and tweets! Your discovery was gone viral! 

The television reporters, film crews and nature  enthusiasts want to come to your island now! How will they travel there, where will they stay, what will they eat and drink, how long will you allow them to stay, will there be anything else for them to see or do on your island, will you need to employ staff to help you, where will they live? There is a lot to think about. Today, you will be developing a eco-tourism industry that provides answers to these questions and shows you care about the environment and the people living on your Island

Ecotourism - A Sustainable Way To Travel

Learn more about ecotourism, the reasons to travel green and get some ideas for your own island...


Before half term in PSHE and Geography, I asked you to listen and enjoy a story titled, ‘The Promise’ and reflect on the following:
•    Think about the message being delivered and what we can learn from it. 
•    Think about how this book might help you manage your Island? What promises you and your Islands’ people might make and keep.
•    Think about how about how one small action can create a difference. 


During our RE lessons, we often look at passages in the bible and discuss what they mean for us today as followers of Jesus. The Psalms say: ‘Look how good and pleasant it is when brothers and sisters live together in unity.’ I would like you to think of 5 promises/commandments that the people of your island and its’ visitors will keep.

For example:

  • For every tree that is cut down another tree will be planted. 


  • 80 % of any profit made through eco-tourism on my island will be spent on educating the world about your Island and its' people.


  • Any decision made about the Island will have to be discussed and passed through a committee made up of the Island's native people.
