Year 4, The Ironman, by Ted Hughes

In Year 4 in literacy lessons we have been studying the book ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes. The main character is an immense man made out of metal who has a head as big as a bedroom and eyes that glow like headlamps and change colour with his mood. 

Some children enjoyed making models of an Iron Man at home and brought them to school to share and meet each other! It was lovely to see such creativity, the different materials used and how different they all looked and so full of individual character! 

In our lessons we learned that the Iron Man only liked to eat things made from metal. We imagined what dishes might be on the menu at a restaurant he would like to visit. We had lots of fun creating tasty starters, delicious main courses, mouthwatering desserts and refreshing drinks that he would enjoy. We also enjoyed playing with the descriptive language used on menus to appeal to their diners. Finally, we decorated each menu. Read some of the dishes on offer. Mmmm... what would you choose?!
