Salaam Parents,

Our topic for term 2 is ‘The Shang Dynasty of Ancient China’ and the geography of China. We will be reading a variety of Chinese folktales and reading ‘The Firework Maker’s Daughter’ by Phillip Pullman during our guided reading sessions. We will also be learning about dragons and doing some creative writing based around them!

Our focus in English will be the book Wonder. Children will continue to improve their narrative writing. The non-fiction text we will be exploring is ‘The Wonder Garden’; this is an amazing illustrated book and I would advise children to pre-read or research it before the new term.

The unit in Science is ‘being Human’. This is continuing from the previous half-term.

Hope you have a great holiday,
Ustadh Hashim
