World Knowledge

The Spring term's World Knowledge context for learning is 'Migration: Incredible Journeys'

Over the term, we will be learning about the wonder of Rivers and our local area.  We will be investigating 3 main concepts:

environment, survival and responsibility.


We will be linking other areas of the curriculum to our context for learning this term.




Over our first half term, we will be focusing on the text 'The Journey' - a beautifully illustrated picture book introducing a powerful and moving perspective on migration. Told through the eyes of a young girl, the story explores the unimaginable decisions made as a mother and her two children are forced to flee their home and everyone they know
to escape the turmoil of war.
