Explore the ancient city of Timbuktu with Musa, from its first days 900 years ago, to modern life in this fascinating city. Books in the Wayfarers strand are for learners who can read a range of texts accurately and fluently. Wayfarers titles require learners to read beyond what’s on the page, inferring characters’ feelings, thoughts and motives from their actions. There is more emphasis on learners’ understanding through reading and less use of illustrations to show meaning. Repetition is used for dramatic effect rather than to build high-frequency vocabulary. Contains teaching support including learning outcomes, curriculum links and follow-up activities.
