It will be our last week on ‘The Iron Man’. We will recap the whole story by creating our own flow charts to organise the main parts. We will create our own characters and write a description about them. To finish the unit, we will become authors and write our version of the story including our new character. During guided reading we will read a book in a group and ask and answer questions. We will summarise the story and will complete comprehension questions to check our understanding.



Our focus next week, will be money and data handling. We will learn to exchange between £ and p when handling money, we will do this by becoming shop keepers to buy and sell items. We will begin to add and subtract amounts to give change. For example, I bought an apple for 54p. I gave the shopkeeper 70p. How much change will I get? We will look at different ways to make a particular amount. E.G. How many ways can you make 20p?

We will interpret bar charts, pictograms and tables to answer and ask questions. We will create our own tables and charts.



We will continue to be technologists. We will design an invention for particular problems, such as not being able to get up in the morning. We will design and make our own moving toy.

As part of our topic, our trip this term will be taking a journey on the Maglev and visiting the Maglev Museum to learn about how and why it was made. Next week we will begin to research facts about the Maglev and write questions to ask on the trip.

In Computing, we will continue to use a program to send and receive emails to the Wizard. He needs our help to complete special tasks to save him from trouble.
