Our Class Book 


Our class book this term is Iron man by Ted Hughes. This is a story about a boy that discovers a new creature that is eating all of the metal. 

Over the term we will be ready the book as a whole class and using it to answer different reading comprehension questions.



During our writing lessons this term we are going to be focusing on writing the entertain. 

During this topic we will be planning and writing a 1st person Narrative where we try to rescue Noah from the Noah's Ark story. We will also be planning and writing a 3rd person Narrative based on our class book 'The Iron Man'. We will be writing an alternative problem, resolution and ending to the story. 



Beginning, build up, problem, resolution, ending, 1st person, 3rd person, entertain 


Expectations for Reading At Home 


It is expected that everyone reads 5 times a week and makes an entry into their reading journals. Everyone who does read 5 times a week will get a raffle ticket and be entered into a draw to win a brand new book each week! Alongside this, reading 5 times a week will help the children to improve their reading fluency and comprehension skills and unlock lots of magical adventures and information!

It is expected that child read the book three times to help improve their fluency and comprehension skills.

Children will need to have a book bag in school every day.


We will be visiting the school library every week to pick a book that we are interested in. These books may be too hard for the children to read independently, but they are a great opportunity to share the book together and for you to read with your children.
