Our focus this term is: The Iron Man 

We will be:

  • Reading the story of The Iron Man by Ted Hughes.

  • Studying the language, plot and characterisation in the book and using these techniques to improve our own writing.
  • Finding out about forces and magnets in our science lessons.

  • Researching where metals come from and how metal things are made.

  • We will be creating collages, making models  and developing dances all  using the Iron Man story as a stimulus.

Please could we have:

  • Any old nuts, bolts, screws (any small metal objects that are safe to handle) to use for our collages.
