Our curriculum, news & events

This is our India class blog to let you know all that we have been doing. Please view all out latest news below and you can also link to and read details of all forthcoming events and upcoming activities opposite.

Mrs McIlwrath (Mrs Mac) is our class teacher.  We work hard to create an exciting and challenging curriculum, which encourages us to become independent learners. In our classroom, we have a positive learning environment, which helps us to achieve and exceed our potential. We are sure that Year 4 will be an exciting year for Class India, as we have many interesting and engaging topics to learn about. 

Autumn Term

During the Autumn term, Year 4 will be travelling back in time to join the Ancient Egyptians.  We will be learning about daily life for both the rich and poor, how the Egyptians wrote, what treasure were to be found in their tombs and most importantly how to mummify a body.  We will link our work in English to the Egyptians by writing an explanation of mummification whilst in science we will learn about digestion and each of the internal organs.  In art we will be trying our hands at sculpture and in music having fun learning songs from Abba. We’re really excited about getting to know each other as a new class and working together on our enterprise project.
