In English this term, Year 3 first studied ‘The Iron Man’ novel by Ted Hughes. They created a fantastic ‘Wanted poster’ detailing the Iron Man’s crimes and personality, as well as writing a character description of the Space-Angel-Demon-Bat using powerful vocabulary and figurative language. After reading the book, Year 3 then went on to watch ‘The Iron Giant film’. This allowed them to compare and contrast both film and book enabling them to express preferences of both styles. Following the Iron Man, Year 3 looked at performance poetry in which they took great joy acting out scenes from poems, as well as writing their own conversational poem about breakfast!
