Remarkable Robots

Robots

Our new topic is an exciting new science topic. The children are reading The Iron Man by Ted Hughes which they will use as inspiration for their drama, poetry and writing.

They have already produced some fantastic letters based on the book. In science, children have been identifying and creating circuits. Children recently investigated which materials were conductors and which were insulators and, because they’re excellent scientists in Year 4, the children identified why the wires in our homes are coated in plastic.

After being inspired by Ted Hughes's words about the sheer size of The Iron Man, children went outside onto the yard and imagined how big their bedrooms were. They then imagined how big that must make the rest of his body and created similes to describe him. My favourite of the day was 'He has eyes as large and round as Ferris wheels.'

Year 4 are looking forward to their visit to the Life Centre where they will take part in a circuits and conductors workshop.
