This term we will be reading the book 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes. The book combines fiction with fairy tale. The Iron man tells the story of a gigantic metal robot who appears out of nowhere, crashing onto the beach and shattering into many parts. He is discovered by Hogarth, a young boy. The Ironman proceeds to devour farm machinery, until the farmers rise up against him. It is an stimulating book which will inspire the children's writing.
