Our topic this autumn: Trade, Tourism and Travel
This term, we will focus much of our learning on the influence trade, tourism and travel from around the world. This will give the children a firm understanding of their role as a global citizen. This is especially relevant in the current context of climate change and uncertainty due to Britain’s precarious position within Europe.
