Project 1

Being Human: Hinduism

 

During this project, the children will have the opportunity to revisit their prior learning about the main principles of the Hindu faith. They will explore the ways in which faith impacts the life choices of Hindus. They will learn about karma, how Hindu's believe this drives the cycle of Samsara and how a Hindu seeks to achieve Moksha.

Project 3

Extreme Earth

 

This enquiry encourages and supports the children to understand some of the key physical processes that shape the Earth, but also to recognise and evaluate the interaction of people with these physical processes. As this enquiry evolves, the children are able to appreciate how environments change over time and how this might bring advantages and challenges to the people who are interconnected with them.
