Holmgate Primary School And Nursery

Let your light shine

Respect, Responsibility, Resilience



As part of our collaboration with our partner school in India, we will be learning about different aspects of life in the Indian subcontinent.  We have already visited the Open Centre and the Hindu temple in Derby to investigate how the Hindu faith is celebrated, as well as finding out about traditional Indian food and clothing. 

Later in the term we will be learning how life in a large Indian city compares with life in our corner of Derbyshire.  We will be doing this through a geography investigation that explores topography, land use and climate as well as economic and social forces such as population density and employment.

 In our art lessons, we will be using the Taj Mahal as a subject to help us hone our drawing skills and explore the possibilities offered by different tools and materials.
