The Three Merchants


Set in Asia, The Three Merchants tells the tale of three brothers- Nobu, Yama and Gawa- and their first adventures away from home. With links to sustainable housing, natural disasters and community, this unit touches upon the challenges of starting afresh and making new friends.

Journey with Nobu to the North, follow Yama to the West and travel with Gawa to the East, all the while looking at different settings, challenges and character reflections. 

You’ll find the free video story below. For the text version of the story, the story map and the accompanying planning, please visit the KS1 Unit Bundles section of the shop. 

Happy teaching!
