Guided Reading

The Iron Man by Ted Hughes


We created story maps to summarise and retell chapter 1.

We used the books as our evidence to create emotions graphs for Hogarth's fathers feelings at the start of Chapter 2.


Using clues in the text, we drew our interpretations of The Iron Man and labelled his body parts based on our evidence from the book.


We have been using clues about what has happened previously to predict what is going to happen next.


We've been making lots of amazing connections to different texts, the world and ourselves. A lot of people said The Iron Man falling and breaking, then rebuilding himself reminded them of Mr Potato Head from Toy Story when he puts himself back together.

A Bear Called Paddington by Michael Bond

Inferences, connections and predictions

We began our new text by looking at some clues to make inferences. We then used what we already know about the character and other texts (including films) to write predictions.
