If, like me, you are struggling to deal with QCA Primary recommendation for KS1 Geography, this book is all you need. The story can develop children's understanding of geographical features and ideas, whilst also developing their literacy skills. It also helps children to formulate views about other people in a contrasting environment. It is also available as a Big Book.

The keystage 1 topic at my school this last term was 'Island Living' and we used the isle of Struay (Coll) as one of our starting points. The Katie Morag books have been invaluable for ideas for literacy, art, DT and PSHCE as well as geography. I particularly like this book about the two grandmothers but they are all great.
