Curriculum for Excellence Resources
The pupils are invited to step from the known world of maps and roads in to the unpredictable world of fable and fiction. Their emotional engagement will motivate learning within Literacy and English and Social Studies.
Opportunities for learning and curriculum links
Principles and Practice in Literacy and English proposes that children and young people need time to spend with stories, literature and other texts which will enrich learning, develop their language skills and enable them to find enjoyment.
Principles and Practice in Social Studies proposes that pupils learn how to locate, explore and link features and places locally and further afield and develop the skill of using maps in a variety of contexts.
