Spring 1 WHERE IN THE WORLD
Vocabulary Triangle (explained)
At the start of each new topic we talk to the children about what they already know related to our focus topic. We create a mind map with all of their prior knowledge. This helps us to then make the vocabulary triangle to identify new vocabulary for the children to understand and use during the topic.
TIER 1- Prior knowledge
TIER 2- Focus vocabulary to introduce during the topic
TIER 3- Aspirational words to extend the children’s vocabulary
