Year 4 have been reading ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes. Having read the first two chapters, the children made a model of the Iron Man, working in groups and pairs to make a section each.
We had to look carefully at the descriptions of the Iron Man in the book, as well as the wonderful illustrations.
The finished Iron Man was over two metres tall and had eyes that lit up and changed colours – just like in the book!
We then wrote newspapers about what it would have been like if the Iron Man really had come. The Iron man stands guard in our entrance hall!
