This term we are learning about China! We have looked at where in the world China is and some geographical features of China, such as the Great Wall! We are now learning about Ancient China and the Shang Dynasty! We are discovering all sorts of artefacts and asking questions about what these might be and why they would have been used. We liked discovering what was found in Fu Hao's tomb!


In Science we are learning about forces and magnets. We learnt the terms 'attract' and repel' and we have also carried out some scientific experiments involving forces, air resistance and magnet strength.



Last term we learnt all about the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings! We travelled back in time to find out all about what it was like to live as an Anglo-Saxon and a Viking. We found out who they were, where they came from, what they did, what they ate, where they lived and how VICIOUS and/or BRAVE they really were - we all different opinions on this!


In Science we learnt about rocks, fossils and soils. It was great fun exploring outside and discovering different types of rock in our natural environment. We made our own layers of 'soil' using yummy sweets and we learnt the difference between sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous rocks. We used chocolate (in different forms) to understand the heating, melting, cooling processes of the different types of rock!
