BBC Bitesize: Sir David Attenborough gives geography lessons

If you've ever fancied having Sir David Attenborough as your geography teacher, then we have some very good news! The presenter of Blue Planet and Planet Earth - and general all-round great person - is going to front a geography lesson for BBC Bitesize. The lessons will be on Tuesday 16th June and Thursday 18th June but don't worry if you've missed them, you can watch them by clicking on the image of Sir David above or follow the links below for more activities. Don't worry about sticking to the age suggestions - we think all of these would be interesting to watch for Y3 so if you fancy learning more about maps then click on the older lesson too. Have a try at the activities or scroll down to find the 2 minute clip, on each page, from Sir David Attenborough.

The lessons will be available on BBC Bitesize Daily, and on the Red Button and BBC iPlayer.

This activity requires you to identify simple features found in coastal areas (download these photos showing a cave, headland, beach, arch and stack, cliff, wave cut platform). It also provides an opportunity for you to demonstrate your understanding of these features through providing a short description and locating a named example either using an OS map, reference books or the internet. 

You could try annotating the photographs from above with the appropriate features of the coastal scene. More information and diagrams of coastal processes can be found on the 3D Geography website on this page to help with this activity.

The UK is a maritime nation, with nowhere more than 70 miles from the sea. Coasts provide a particularly appropriate context for exploring and investigating key geographical ideas and concepts, such as physical processes and human effects on the environment; physical changes can occur almost every day through the action of the tides. Thanks to seaside holidays and day trips, most of us will have a shared understanding of the coast and its features, while those who are fortunate enough to live on or near the coast will be even more familiar with its character. We are one of those who are lucky enough to live by the coast. This term we plan to look at the coastal resort of New Brighton.
