We have been looking at how an author's word choices can influence us. This is an extract from Dick King-Smith's 'The Finger-Eater': "He was hump-backed and bow-legged, with a frog-face and bat-ears and razor-sharp teeth.But he grew up (though, like all other trolls, not very tall) with an extremely bad habit - he liked to eat fingers!" Here is what we thought the Finger-Eater looked like, before we saw the book!

Today, we have had our learning launch for our new project: You're Hired! Quality or Quantity? As a part of this, we walked into town to see how many businesses we could find. We also spoke to some shopkeepers to find out about the skills they need to run a successful business.

We have been exploring magnetism this afternoon. We learnt that magnets have a north pole and a south pole, that opposite poles attract whilst the same poles repel each other, and that not all materials are magnetic.

We have been practising our using ruler, colouring and scissor skills this week to make snakes. We had great fun!
