We have started the new term looking at a non-fiction unit, The Shang Dynasty of Ancient China. We have explored the Big Question: Did the Shang Dynasty really exist? To help us to answer the question we have explored the eBook, looked at the important non-fiction features and distinguished between fact and opinions. At the end of the unit, we will be planning and writing our own non-chronological report.

In our Science lessons, we will be learning about changes of state.
The children will have the opportunity to identify, group and describe different materials as solids, liquids or gases. They will describe and actively model simple scientific ideas of solids, liquids and gases in terms of arrangement of particles. They will recognise that the same material can exist in different states and begin to develop their ideas about states of matter and changes of state which can be reversed.
Working Scientifically, the children will have the opportunity to set up simple enquiries and fair tests, asking questions and using different types of scientific enquiries to answer them.
In our RE lessons, we are learning about Jesus being the light of the world.
We will be looking at some important scriptures about the life of Jesus and the revelation of his presence in the world.
In our History lessons, we are learning about the Romans.
So far, we have learnt about the spread of the Roman empire and the impact it had on us.
