The Iron Man

Class: Dragonflies Year: 2017 - 2018

Autumn A

This half term we have been reading The Iron Man  by Ted Hughes. The children have loved our sensory version of the story and have joined in creating a soundscape, using different instruments for the sounds of the sea, the wind and The Iron Man himself.

We set about building our very own Iron Man, recycling boxes and using a variety of different materials joined  together in different ways - anything to help him stand up!

The Iron Man in the story is very tall, taller than a house! Our Iron Man is not quite so tall but he almost reaches the ceiling! Take a look at these pictures showing the making of our Iron Man and how tall he actually is:
