Summer Term 2021 - Indus Valley Civilisation 



This term we will be learning about the ancient Indus Valley Civilisation. We will be looking at maps and globes to find it's location, and use timelines to determine when the Indus Valley Civilisation were active. We will find out about the two most significant settlements in the Indus Valley, and the archaeologists who first discovered them. We will research the homes of the Indus people and their lifestyles, and discover why the civilisation disappeared. 




At some point each half term the children should complete at least three activities from the homework grid. Written work must be presented neatly in your homework book. Creative work can be presented in any way of your choosing. 


Please find link to the homework grid below:


We will also send weekly spellings home every Thursday which will be tested on the following Thursday morning. Don't forget to also log on to Mathletics each week.


General Information 

PE is on Monday and Tuesday afternoons. This takes place outside as often as possible so the children will benefit from having navy track suit trousers in their PE kit. 

We have a timetabled library session each week where the children are encouraged to choose a book to borrow and bring home to share with you.

Times Tables

The children need daily practice of their times tables as they are expected to know all of their times tables up to 12x12 by the end of Year 4.

For the first time this year, the government have introduced a statutory times tables test for Year 4 children which will take place in the Summer term.
