## Iron man description by Job

IRON MAN by Ted Huges

Today in Literacy we wrote a description of the Iron Man. We looked at using adjectives and similes. We took each body part, gave it an adjective, then a simile before putting it all into a sentence. Below are some examples from class

“His large, metallic head was ridged like an old fashioned dustbin”

“His long arm was as long as a tree trunk.”

## Homework for Job and Isaiah (week 1)

Year 3 Homework (SPR) –

Homework due in Monday 29th Feb 2016

Read every day for at least 10 minutes. Please remember your child must have their book signed. Every fortnight children are expected to do a book review of a book they have been reading or have read, children can pick these up from the classroom and stick them into their homework books

Handwriting:

Writing:

1. Are you ever angry? Think of a time when you have felt angry (at home, at school or somewhere else). Discuss the story with your helper. What happened to make you feel angry? Was it someone or something that annoyed you? What did you do? How did it end?
2. Make a cartoon strip of the time you were angry. You are only allowed to have 3 pictures in your cartoon strip though! Think carefully about how you can explain the whole story with just a beginning, a middle and an end.
3. You can include sentences underneath each picture too if you like.

Maths:

Here’s the trick!

• Think of a number between 1 and 20
• Multiply it by 5
• Double it
• Remove the last digit
• Subtract one  What do you notice? 1. Ask as many different people as you can to think of a number.  2. Tell them every step in order up to and including step 4.  3. Then silently, carry out steps 5 and 6 and tell them the number they thought of! Hopefully they will be well impressed!

Spellings:

A: staff, stiff, off, bluff, stuff, jazz, fizz, whizz, buzz

B/C: purpose, quarter, question, recent, regular, reign, remember, sentence, separate, special, strange.

Spellings should be practiced daily, please write them the homework book. Please also write them within sentences.

Thanks

Mr Everden and Miss Patel
