The Wonders of India 

Exploring traditions

The title of our topic this half term is ‘The Wonders of India.’ 


We will be learning about what life is like in India and exploring traditions, culture, food, festivals, landmarks, famous people and much more.


We have already launched the topic and the children will take part in various activities related to India such as creating Indian art pieces, sampling Indian food and learning about this fantastic country.


They are very enthusiastic and anything that you can do at home to support this topic would be very much appreciated.
