We are studying the book The Iron man this half term. In chapter 1, we looked at how the author has used vocabulary to create different pictures, feelings and atmospheres and picked out some of this excellent vocabulary.
In chapter 2, wee looked at how the different characters were feeling and thinking about the Iron Man and what they might want to do about him.
Our class novel was How to Train your Dragon so for most of the term, we studied this novel. we also looked at non fiction information books to find out more about a real life dragon (a Komodo dragon) and compared this type against instruction writing we did last term. Here are some examples of the work we have done from it.

We also looked at different reading genres and investigated what genre some of the books we have read were.
When we were all back in school, we read a story called Gregory Cool, written by Caroline Binch. It was about a boy who went to stay with his Grandparents in another country - Tobago.
For the Autumn Term, our class novel was Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. In our big read sessions, we focussed on studying this book, looking at a chapter each week and here are just a few examples of the work we have done.
