English

This week in English we will be looking at the text The Iron Man by Ted Hughes.

Session 1 – Look at the picture of the front cover and read the blurb on the back of the book.

Blurb – The Iron Man is a fearsome figure, wreaking terrible destruction wherever he goes. He cannot be stopped – but it takes a child to realise that he is not simply a hostile monster, but could even be a friend. Then, when a monster from outer space threatens to lay waste to the planet and its people, it is the Iron Man who finds a way to save them.

Learning activity at home – Can you think about completing these three tasks
Observe – What can you see from the front cover?
Wonder – What questions do you have after looking at the front cover and blurb?     ‘I wonder……….’
Predict – What do you predict will happen?

Now read chapter 1 of the story below.
