This topic Mars have been investigating movement and forces in science. We have conducted lots of experiments and we have investigated the way magnets move through dance.
In maths we have been looking at mass and length, the children have really taken on board the new maths books and have loved creating their own word problems and thinking creatively in our maths lessons.
We have also taken the opportunity to work artistically with a variety of materials, to create our own interpretation of the Iron Man. We used different coloured backgrounds to experiment with different moods form the book and developed out mark making skills.
In English we have thoroughly enjoyed studying the Iron Man by Ted Hughes. We’ve had lots of fantastic English lessons where we have taken turns becoming the iron man through role play. This allowed us to really think about what the Iron man is thinking and feeling. This work has lead to some fantastic diary entries and narratives.
