Term 3: INDIA!


Happy new year to you all! 

We are very excited about our new learning journey! We will be exploring the geography and culture of India in Badgers Class this term. 

In science, the children will investigate light and shadows. They will make their own shadow puppets, similar to those created in Indian shadow puppet theatres.  The children will explore the Hindu faith in RE, making links with their science topic through Diwali, the festival of light.  We will be creating sculptures as shrines to the Hindu gods in Art sessions to further link to our RE topic. We will explore festivals such as Holi and the International Kite Festival. We are so looking forward to facilitating real hands on experiences for the children such as a Bollywood Dance workshop, a trip to the Rajdutt Indian Restaurant, a printmaking workshop, designing and flying kites as well as making Indian sweets. 

The children will write their own scripts to accompany the story of Rama and Sita, write recounts of their experiences, investigate the geography of India to enable them to write presentations and draw comparisons.

In maths, we will continue to develop the children's number work through division. We will then move on to investigating angles and 2D and 3D shape.

PE will see the children continuing multi-skills with Ian Dove on a Tuesday afternoon and playing hockey on a Wednesday afternooon.

Spellings are tested every Thursday. Your child's spellings for this term will be sent home in the first couple of days back. Please find an electronic copy below should you need an additional copy.
