The Wider Curriculum
Science- This week in science you can do your own little project. Can you find out about a bird or animal that you are interested in? It could be from another country, it could live in your garden. You may have a book about it. You choose this week! Can you draw it and write some facts about it? This science work is about a real creature but in literacy you are writing about a creature you have created so it is different.
Can you think about the videos and information you have found out about India in the past couple of weeks? We would like you to think about how your life might be the same as a child in India and how it may different? Think about foods, crops that are grown, the weather, clothes, faiths and so on.
You may want to find out about a school in India too and how it compares to your school. Here is a powerpoint that you might like to look at. There are some photos with some sentences underneath to read with your parent and carer. See what you can find out about the similar things and the different things in UK schools and an Indian school.
RE – In India, most people follow the Hindu faith. There are also people who follow the Islamic faith and are Muslim, some who follow the Sikh faith and some who are Christians too. We are going to find out a little more about some Hindu festivals this week.
The first video is about a Hindu festival called Diwali. It is also known at The Festival of Lights. See what you can find out.
The second videos is about a festival celebrated in India by people who follow the Hindu faith and the festival is called Holi. However, this video is all about the Holi festival celebrated in the UK as many people follow Hinduism in the UK and sometimes their grandparents were born in India.
Watch the videos until the end. You might see someone throwing powder paint!
Finally, relax and catch up with progress in the garden!
