Class Hussain have been very busy enquiring into transport and how it has changed over time. We found out about the first cars and how dangerous and scary they looked to drive! We are very glad we live in a modern world of seatbelts and air bags!
We also began comparing transport in Europe to transport in Asia – specifically India – ready for our next Enquiry. Turns out many of the streets of India are very different to the streets in England. We’ve seen people, horses, donkeys, cars and motorbikes all trying to fit of the same piece of road – travelling in both directions! We couldn’t believe how relaxed the animals looked. They must be used to it!
In our Writing we’ve been thinking about India and learning about the culture there. We’ve investigated the Hindu religion and written descriptions of Ganesh the Hindu remover of obstacles and read ‘The Tiger Child’ an Indian Folktale. Most recently we’ve written an Indian version of Jack and the Beanstalk named Ram and the Banyan Tree!
