Year 3 + 4 – Making Robots

As part of our ‘Mighty Metals’ topic in Creativity, Year 3 + 4 have been reading the Iron Man by Ted Hughes.  Using this fantastic novel as inspiration, we have worked together to create our own robot, out of recyclable materials.


Using the knowledge we have learned during our companion Electricity unit in Science, we then added working circuits to our robots to light up their eyes and bodies at the flick of a switch –  so that they ‘glowed like headlamps’ as Ted Hughes’ creation did.
