This half term we studied our Computing topic 'Rise of the Robots'. We looked at the book 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes. This book is an adventure story about an iron giant who causes a bit of chaos in his town by eating all the metal! We used it to write our own amazing adventure stories! We learnt a robot song in music and performed this at our class assembly. In science we looked at electricity. We had lots of fun using batteries, light bulbs, buzzers, switches and motors to create our own circuits. We learnt about how electricity is transferred to our homes as well as the difference between mains and battery electricity. 


We had lots of fun coding and creating our own animations on the school computers. As well as this we designed our own robots and created pictures of them on Purple Mash. Have a look in the pictures section to see some of the best! Image result for the iron man ted hughes
