Description

This resource has been created to support the Year 3 Unit of Work- Significant Events, Symbols and Emblems. This resource contains two texts on the celebrations of Diwali and the Lunar New Year, a Venn diagram to compare the information they have found, and a summary scaffold to support students in drawing conclusions from the information they have discovered. A fantastic resource to get students to recognise and analyse celebrations that are important to different groups.
