Shen is presented with a magic brush but she is to only use it for good. In the story, she overcomes a greedy emperor who sets his dragon upon Shen. The children create their own dragon-like monsters through playing mix and match monsters and record their ideas by drawing and labelling a diagram. They then write their own-version narrative by changing the items that their main character paints and including their own monster that the main character overcomes. 

Maths: This week the children will begin to understand that as we count, each number is one more than the number before. Similarly as we count back, each number is less than the previous number. We will be using a range of representations to support this understanding and encourage the children to represent the one more and one less patterns as they count. 



Please note that home learning will be given out on Thursdays and is to be returned on Mondays.
