Year 4 Stories from other cultures - Pakistan

Discussion in 'Primary' started by beanie80, Feb 20, 2011.

  1. Hi
    Last year in year 4 we did 'A Village in India' geography topic and tied it in nicely with some Indian stories for literacy. This year we've been told to adapt the geography to 'A Village in Pakistan' as it will reflect our school community more - so of course I'd like to change the literacy too and work on stories from Pakistan - however, I'm struggling to find any! There are countless lovely books of Indian stories on amazon etc, but cannot find any Pakistani ones!

    Any ideas? Or will I have to give up and do Indian stories/choose a completely different country?

    There is one about a girl at the time when Pakistan is separating from India, but I cannot remember it off the top of my head. But I'm sure that there was some nls planning linked to it. I want to say it has the word garden in the title? But I may be making that up, I'll have a google around.
