Over the last five weeks Room 15 has been listening to the story of The Iron Man. The students were engrossed and would recommend highly it .
Olivia wrote: The story of the Iron Giant - it is big and it is made of iron. It's a very good book.
Alyssa described our follow-up: We made an Iron Man with some pastels, brown paper and dye. It turned out so cool.

The opening paragraphs of The Iron Man 
by Ted Hughes

The Iron Man came to the top of the cliff.
How far had he walked? Nobody knows.  
Where had he come from? Nobody knows. 
How was he made? Nobody knows.

Taller than a house, the Iron Man stood at the top of the cliff, on the very brink, in the darkness.The wind sang through his iron fingers. His great iron head, shaped like a dustbin, but as big as a bedroom, slowly turned to the right, slowly turned to the left. His iron ears turned, this way, that way. His eyes, like headlamps, glowed white, then red, then infra-red, searching the sea. Never before had the Iron Man seen the sea.
