Poisonous potions, aromatic brews, vapour or a sticky goo… Welcome to the amazing world of potions!
By reading an extract from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in English, we’ll learn all about mysterious potions and retell parts of the story. We will also turn the story into our own playscripts to perform.
In Science, we will sort everyday items into solids, liquids and gases. Using our investigation skills we’ll explore capacity and the properties of liquids. We will also explore circuit making equipment adding in switches.
In Art we will be developing our drawing, sketching and painting skills looking at different lines, textures and shading.
Our History learning will be based on the Ancient Civilization of The Shang Dynasty. We will look at a range of images of artefacts to deduce and search for clues about the past.
During computing lessons, we will continue to focus on E-Safety and understanding the importance of this as well as using coding to create games and movements of characters.
