Being inspired by Ted Hughes

05 May 2022

The Iron Man By Ted Hughes
Our Class novel, The Iron Man, written by Ted Hughes has been inspiring the childrens own writing this week.

We have been working hard this term identifying parts of speech - that is identifying what job words are doing in a sentence - e.g. telling us what is the action, so a verb, or telling us the name of person, place or thing so a noun. This hard work has paid off and the children are being more confident identifying the nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs and conjunctions. 

When the children are more able to identify what words are doing, they are then more aware of how these are used by the authours they read, so they will notice some powerful description or feel moved by a powerful verb. Furthermore they also begin to use a greater variety of word types in their own writing when they are writing for different purposes. 

Inspired by Ted Hughes description the children practised using powerful verbs, adjectives, comparisons and adverbials to describe the events in chapter one. Using these skills, they then rewrote the first chapter, changing the biewpoint of the story. Ted Hughes had written his story in the 3rd person, so it sounds like someone is watching what is happening and telling us the reader. But we chose to write it from the Iron Mans perspective, so seeing the events through his eyes. They did a wonderful job!

Please scroll through the pictures below to see their amazing writing. I think you will agree they are becoming superstar writers!
