Welcome to Terms 3 and 4


Journey to the River Sea

Knowledge Organiser


This term we will be using the book Journey to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotson as the driver for our learning in Geography, History and English.

The story is set in South American and we will be using it to help us with our learning about the Amazon River in Brazil.  In History, we will find out about the Mayan civilisation.  Throughout the unit, we will be looking closely at the similarity and differences between European and Non-European geography and history.
