Tales from Ancient China

 

These are the questions children will be exploring as part of our project work:

 

Can I locate China and its main cities on a world map?

 

Can I sort ancient Chinese dynasties on a timeline?

 

Can I give a 3 minute presentation on the topic ‘Who were the Shang?

 

Can I examine the life of a Shang King?

 

Can I compare Chinese writing with the Western Alphabet?

 

Can I describe how we know about the Ancient Shang dynasty and compare it to modern China?

Children will explore persuasive writing and where it is used.  They will pick apart leaflet, holiday brochures and adverts looking at both layout and language features.  Children will then apply what they know to produce their very our tourism advert to persuade people to visit China. 

We will then complete a book study on 'The willow pattern Story' book and produce some willow pattern inspired pottery. We will also explore how the illustrations tell the story and how you can actually read without words.  

We start after Christmas investigating fractions and learning lots of new skills around working with fractions.  Children will explore equivalent fractions, mixed number and improper fractions, number sequences, adding and subtracting fractions.  By the end of this, children will be dreaming about FRACTIONS!!!!!! 

 

We will then recap some of our work on multiplication and division ensuring we can apply our skills when completing reasoning/ problem solving activities.
