'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes
Hazel 4 will be reading a novel together and completing tasks including analysis, drama and comprehension for each chapter.
The Iron Man came from the top of the cliff. How far had he walked? Nobody knows.
Where had he come from? Nobody knows. How was he made? Nobody knows.
Taller than a house,
the Iron Man stood at the top of the cliff,
on the very brink,
in the darkness.

This week's learning
Autumn 2 term
Week beginning Monday 11th November 2019
English In English, we are looking at persuasive writing. We will be writing persuasive paragraphs for Flamingo Land. The week will start by looking at introductory paragraphs with the focus on intriguing questions and powerful adjectives. We will also look at the rides, facilities and the zoo emphasising different styles of persuasion such as emotive language and power of three.
Maths The focus this week in Maths will be working out the perimeter of shapes. We will start by using grids, then using measurements before working towards the perimeter of combined shapes only given some of the lengths.
Science This half term we will be looking at Electricity. Children will get the opportunity to make fully working electrical circuits using batteries, bulb and wires. We will examine what happens when more/less batteries are used, more than one bulb is added to a circuit and how to include buzzers and switches.
Art/DT Art and DT will be taught discreetly this year so our Art focus will be to create a collage based around a Viking Long ship. This will be using a range of materials on a watercolour backdrop. The DT will follow on from the Science. The children will plan, design, make and evaluate a light up table decoration with a Christmas theme. It should be a stand alone design with a functioning electrical bulb in it.
Computing We will start to use the Purple Mash program which will introduce the children to a quick and easy way of coding so they will ge the opportunity to create their own computer program.
RE This half term we will focus on how important events are recognised different cultures and faiths, including Judaism, Sikhism, Hinduism and Ancient Civilisations. A large focus will be the significance of light in different world religions.
As well as all the usual subjects, children will be learning songs for the Christmas production. A number of children will also be given time to learn lines if they want speaking parts for the show. If your child has lines to learn, please ensure they practise them at home as well so they know them as soon as they can.
