The Iron Man


In our Literacy lesson this half term we are studying the Iron Man, a book by Ted Hughes. We have looked at the first two chapters and discussed the changing emotions of the two main characters; Hogarth and the Iron Man. We have written fabulous descriptive pieces and shared ideas about what is going to happen next in the text. We have been using similes and metaphors to add drama and imagery.


Last week we focused mainly on the events in chapter two and then wrote contrasting viewpoints from Hogarth and the Iron Man. The children worked so brilliantly to add references and extracts from the chapter.

Today we completed a conscious alley activity; whereby we looked at how the two characters felt and hot seated their opinions and feelings. It was something we all really enjoyed.
