Primary Global Citizenship – From King’s Lynn to India

A Year 4 class work on a project about India A 21st century curriculum demands that a school prepares learners to live and work in our interdependent global society. Amy Aviss, Year 4 teacher at St Martha’s Primary School in King’s Lynn believes her children should be introduced to social, political, environmental and economic issues that are part of the world beyond King’s Lynn.
The children have been working with the West Norfolk Development Education Agency on a half-term project about India. Through an immersive class project the children learn about saris, try traditional dance steps, and think about the mathematics of living on an extremely reduced income as many families have to in Calcutta. All this work is being done in preparation for a festival where St Martha’s show their traditional dance, and give a presentation about India to children assembled from five other schools.
