On March 6th all Key Stage Three students took part in the ‘The Big Morning Read’. This involved reading ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes. All students heard a chapter in the first four lessons of the morning until the full story was completed. This took place across the curriculum.
Students were asked to predict what would happen at the end of each chapter and those ideas were carried forward to the following lesson. When the story was completed the children were asked to take part in a discussion topic. This involved answering the question, ‘How are we going to make people and countries work more closely together?’ The students were asked to place their answers in a tool box which had been placed in reception.
