St Ives Pupils Discover Ted Hughes, The Iron Man

In English, Year 4 have been studying The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. 

They used the description in the text to help them decide how large the Iron Man might be and then drew him on the school playground with chalk.  Using a Thesaurus to help, they thought of as many words and phrases as possible to describe his size and wrote their words inside their chalk outline.  Finally, they used a tape measure to measure how tall he may have been.

The pupils loved this outdoor exercise which encouraged them to creatively express their ideas about the characters in the story!
