We will read The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. Where did he come from? Nobody knows
We will create and write stories using Talk for Writing and think of our own characters and problem.
In October, we have a trip planned to Percy in Middlesbrough where all children will be able to design and create their very own Iron Man model using the recyclable resources on offer. This is one of Mr Leggott’s favourite trips ever!
Resources to access at home:

Year 3 and Year 4 children will be entering the Middlesbrough Schools Skipping Competition.
Homework will be focusing on:
The topic that week.
This is always set for children so that they can access it independently.
This is given out every Friday and children have a week to complete it.
We are always available for support if your child is finding it too tricky.
We have spare sheets too if it gets misplaced.
Children are expected to read at home at least three times per week to an adult and get their planner signed. This can be as little as a few pages.
The Reading Log must also be completed if a book has been read in order for a new book to be given out.
Please note, due to the increasing length and complexity of the books, they will be changed a maximum of three times per week as we expect a full understanding of the text.
Asking your child questions about the story, characters, setting and making predictions also help children comprehend.
Giving your child a short, fun quiz of five questions at the end of the story is an exciting way for you to test their understanding.
Remember, it is not a race through the reading stages!
Spellings are given out each week for your child to practice. These are featured on page 100 in your child’s planner
