This term, our topic is the Indus Valley Civilisation and India. We will be learning about how they lived, their advancements and making comparisons to life in Britain. We will be investigating historical artefacts to see what we can learn about this newly discovered ancient civilisation.

Year 5/6 News

Each half term, the children will be given a project to complete as homework. This half term, I would like the children to research an area of the Indus Valley that particularly interests them.  The homework can be presented in numerous ways: some writing, art work, a diagram/model or as a presentation. The completed project will be presented in class on the last week of each half term.



We have been studying Rangoli patterns as part of our work on India and Hinduism. The children used coloured sand, salt, rice and petals to create their final Rangoli designs.
