Weeks 5 and 6

The children have been exploring healthy balanced diets in D&T, referring to the Eat Well Plate. They have been learning to recognise different food groups and why we need them. We had different Indian foods in class that we tasted in preparation to design a healthy Indian feast! 

In Art, the children have started to create their Henri Rousseau inspired art work based on 'The Surprise.' We can't wait to showcase them in our gallery. 

We have been joined by Mr Richards in our Music lessons. We can't wait to put our ideas together to create an Indian inspired performance. 

We have done some Maths based on 'The Jungle Book' creating bar charts to show which are our favourite characters.

Weeks 3 and 4

 

Our Jungle Book learning continues and we have been exploring India. The children have discussed similarities and differences between two places in India. They have expanded their Tier 3 vocabulary and have looked at the slums in India. Our Art has led the children to explore and decide which paint will be best to use to create the vivid colours of the jungle, based on Henri Rousseau's work.

In Computing and Maths, we have been learning to sort and read information using different charts. We have used a Spreadsheet to begin recording information. The children were amazed at how the spreadsheet could work out calculations!

Week Two

Our Jungle Book focus has continued with meeting Shere Khan and setting a trap for him! The children want to keep Mowgli safe. The children have enjoyed reading Jungle themed poetry and have researched the animals that live in the Indian jungle, ready for their own writing. We have explored where our foods come from, in D&T, and we have used our senses to look at foods, herbs and spices used in Indian cookery. 

In Science, we have been learning about the stages of human growth.

Week One

We have located India using atlases, world maps and Google Earth. The children have shared what they already know about India. We found out that the capital city is New Delhi.

We explored images of Indian jungles and sketched shapes and lines, whilst discussing colours and features of the jungle. In Science, we have shared what we already know about how we survive.
