Class Reader

Our new class reader for this term is The Iron Man by Ted Hughes.

By looking at the image of the front cover, can you predict what the book is about and try and explain why you think that.

 

 

Now read the blurb from the back of the book:

 

The Iron Man came to the top of the cliff.

Where had he come from? Nobody knows.

How was he made? Nobody knows.

 

What are your predictions now? Can you predict where he came from and how he was made?
