Hello year 5. We hope you're all well.  

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 for primary school children will be on Tuesday 16 June and Thursday 18 June.

It certainly sounds like these lessons will be a little bit different to what you'd normally get in the classroom, and will include animations as well as footage from the Natural History Unit. Why not take a look?
