We used atlases to draw the continents and oceans on our balloons. Then we used the atlases to consider if we needed to leave Syria, what route would we choose to reach the UK and what problems we might face on our journey. 
Clips from BBC newsround helped us to understand some of the reasons why Syrians are leaving Syria. Now we are learning about the life of Aya, an eight year old girl who lives in a refugee camp. Her story is our inspiration for diary writing and newspaper reporting this week.
