Learning Log India Homework and 4H in the New Library

Published Monday, September 05, 2011.
Last updated: Monday, September 05, 2011


Dear Parents,

I have given out today the instruction sheet that goes with the extended Learning Log homework (details below). As I have had limited time with the class today due to Specialist lessons, I have not given out the Learning Logs or India maps as they need more detailed explanation. For tonight, the children have been asked to research the information they need to fill in the map. They can do this on the Patana website through Primary/Year Four/Link and Learn/Humanities/India or search on Google for a simple, clearly labelled India map. There are other websites posted on the Year Four Homework blog by Mrs Wishart.

 The children have until two weeks today – Monday 19th September to complete and return this homework.  They should only be working on this homework for 50 minutes this week and 50 minutes next week – in line with our homework expectations.  In addition to this they should continue to read each afternoon / evening for 15 minutes.

 If you are finding that your child is having problems with this work or the expectations are unrealistic within the given time frames please let me know. 

 If you have any further questions about this piece of work or indeed anything else please do not hesitate to get in touch.

 Have a great week



India Learning Log Homework


This week the children will complete their first extended activity.  This is related to out Incredibly India unit.  One of the expected outcomes for this unit is for the children to develop an understanding of the language of geography and be able to identify physical features in a map.


The children will be given a blank map of India and they are asked to identify and label:

  • 7 neighbouring countries
  • 1 island
  • 1 ocean
  • 1 sea
  • 1 major rivers
  • 4 cities
  • 1 desert
  • 1 highland area.

For an extra, optional challenge can they identify and label:

  • 1 bay
  • 1 plateau
  • 1 other major river
  • 1 line of tropic
  • 2 more highland areas.

The children have the option to display this in their learning log book or they are welcome to display it in some other form (they might not even use their Learning Log’s).  The more creative the better.  The children are expected to present their work to a high standard.  This means, correct spelling, their best handwriting, careful colouring, and, use of colour.

 They will find this information in an atlas or on line so it will also develop their research skills.

The New Primary Library

Today, we visited the fabulous new library for the first of our regular Monday morning sessions. As you can see from the pictures below, it is a fantastic environment for the children to immerse themselves in the world of books!
