Have you ever seen The Iron Man? As a class we will be investigating who this strange figure is and where he has come from as we explore our new book: The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. Throughout this unit we will discover more and more about this unusual character and develop our writing skills by describing the setting and characters, writing letters in role, poems and our own stories.
We will also be looking at how diaries are written, what format they take and how they are structured before writing our own diaries in the role of different characters from different books.
Our class novel this half term is: Stig of the Dump. By Clive King
