The Iron Man

Year three have have been studying The Iron Man by Ted Hughes recently. They started by reading Chapter 1 and hearing how an iron giant had fallen down a cliff and broken into pieces before fixing himself and disappearing into the sea.

They were asked to investigate strange goings-on in Stoke Park Woods and came across a scattering of metallic objects. The children came to the conclusion that the Iron Man had visited us and left a few bits and pieces behind. 

In class the children have been writing in the style of Ted Hughes and investigating magnets and their effects. Students made a device to see if they could help the Iron Man pick up metal objects after his hands had fallen off.
