Science Fiction – The Iron Man

December 15th, 2017

In Science Fiction we have been writing our own stories using The Iron Man as a model.

We have identified that the author, Ted Hughes, used lots of similes, repetition and short dramatic sentences. we have successfully incorporated these features into our stories.

Here’s an excerpt from one of our stories:

‘Fingers twitching like a newborn baby, his leg, his rusty right leg, lunged backwards. Never before had he seen a  mine, his ear then slightly slipped to an awkwardly diagonal left. Numbers shone in his over-sized eye, then the other green, orange and then they turned back to the turquoise blue.’

The children are so enthusiastic about our topic- ‘In A Galaxy far Faraway’ that we have decided to set a creative homework. We will discuss the options for this as a class.

In a Galaxy Far Faraway

November 22nd, 2017

Our new topic is a Science based topic – In A Galaxy Far Farway…

We have already discussed how we know that the Earth Sun and Moon are roughly spherical. We have also started to study the planets in our Solar System.

We used ‘Speed Dating’ to find out about the planets. We had just 2 minutes to read and memorize facts about each planet before we moved onto the next one. Once we had done this we then had to recall as many facts as possible.

Some of us develop effective ways to memorize facts, including repeating the fact and finding visual clues to help us.
