China in all it's Glory!


In our English lessons we will be focusing on poetry and language using the famous Chinese Willow Pattern story for inspiration. The children will create their own poems, narrative and develop more effective vocabulary choices alongside widening their range of sentence structures.
In maths children will be learning about fractions, decimals and percentages and will calculate problems and take part in investigations in these areas.

Spring 1 – China in all its glory

Our topic this term is another fascinating one that the children will love! They will be learning all about China looking at both the rich history of the country and exploring its location in the world and its famous landmarks through geography. As well as this, they will be creating a very exciting Chinese dragon dance in PE and some very effective art work.
