Migration is rarely absent from the news and arouses political, social cultural and emotional responses which range from compassion to hostility, racism and antiracism. By exploring migration in the past, it is possible for children to go beyond current issues and appreciate that, rather than being a recent characteristic of the times in which we live, it forms part of our past which stretches back to earliest times. This carries the risk of seeing the past through a twenty-first century perspective and it is necessary to focus on using this study as a means of providing a context for the world in which we live, while appreciating distinctions between the past and present.There are many opportunities to develop this as a topic within the National Curriculum at both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
