The Magic Paintbrush

The Magic Paintbrush

When the greedy emperor hears about Shen's magic brush, all he can think about is gold. Shen, however, is determined to only paint food for the hungry and clothes for the needy. But how can a little village girl match an emperor's mighty power?


"I order you to paint a tree, and make it very big. Instead of leaves, paint golden coins a hundred on each twig."


This half term we are geographers!


We started off learning about where we live in relation to the rest of the world. We then learnt about the continents and oceans of the world and learnt a catchy song.


This week (23.01), we began learning about China. First we looked at a world map and located China. We found out it was in Asia. Then, Mrs Lavelle gave us a map of China. We had to be geographers and find the following things:

  • Can you find the capital city?
  • Can you find Shanghai?
  • Can you find Yangtze river?
  • Name an ocean near China.
Then we learnt some facts about China and learnt vocabulary such as population, currency and language. Once we had done this, Mrs Lavelle gave us statements to sort into true and false to prove what we had learnt.

Meet the characters

Today (28.01), we met some of the characters and asked them questions. We were very impressed at how well they were able to take on the role of a character.


We learnt a dance to the music from the Emperor and I. We worked with a partner and then performed. We did very well.
