The Iron Man
We have been studying the Iron Man by Ted Hughes. We have written newspaper reports about the first sighting of the iron giant. Our creative homework for this half term asked us to make a model of a robot. Here are some of the fantastic creations we have produced.
World Book Day - 1st March 2018. The Key Stage 2 theme was adventurers and Tornadoes rose to the occasion as usual with some fabulous costumes. The winner from our year group was Mary Poppins complete with carpet bag and umbrella!
We have had some excitement learning about the adventures of Robin Hood and managed to write our own adventure for him. Mrs Tomes even dressed up as Robin Hood and pretended to recruit her class as Merry Men!
Spring 2 half term has found us studying narrative poetry, in particular the poem Macavity by T.S. Elliot. Macavity was ' the hidden paw', a criminal mastermind. We then studied another of his poems about two cats called Mungojerrie and Rumpleteaser. These two were complete mischief makers and thieves. We wrote a story about how they sneak into school and mess up Mrs Tomes classroom, squirting paint, swinging on the lights, emptying drawers and scribbling in books. What would Mrs Tomes and Mrs Mackenzie say?
