Topic:

Today you are going to learn about Fu Hao. She was the most powerful woman to live during the Shang Dynasty. Have a look at the links below to find out about her.

There is also a word document attached where you can find out more facts about Fu Hao.

Once you have done your research, we would like you to write a diary entry. This can be done in two ways.

 

Option 1: Write a diary entry from the point of view of Fu Hao as she led the Shang to victory over the Tu-Fang.

Points to discuss: How she prepared her troops for battle, what strategies she used, emotions she felt, what she did to celebrate victory etc.

 

Option 2: Write a diary entry from the point of view of an archaeologist who has just found Fu Hao’s tomb.

Points to discuss: How did you find the tomb, what did you find in there, why do you think her tomb had so much in it, how you felt about this amazing discovery.

 

Reading: Please do your daily reading and record it in your reading record.  You can now also go on: https://www.myon.co.uk/login/index.html to do your online reading and quizzes too! We can see how many books you have read and how you are doing on your quizzes. So go on, let’s get reading!
