Autumn Term

Incredible India!

In our learning this term we will be finding out all about India!

We will initially focus on the Geography part of our learning journey, where we will find out about India as a country and in particular we will learn about the village of Chembakoli, which is in Southern India.

We will compare Chembakoli with Torquay and we will focus our comparison on their homes, schooling and transport, so that the children can gain an understanding of the similarities and differences between where they live and a village in another country.


Map of India

In our Science learning we will be learning about living things and their habitats, and we will look at how animals are suited to the habitats in which they live and that their habitats provide them with what they need.

We will compare animals that are typically found in the UK with animals that live in India.   

Here are a few websites about India that the children will find interesting and will also help them with their homework menu;
