The Iron Man - Dancing the Text

As part of our focus on Literacy, Years 4, 5 & 6 spent last half term using 'The Iron Giant' by Ted Hughes as a stimulus for dance in PE.
The children started by recreating the way that the Iron Man started to piece himself together, using the idea of magnets, following his fall over the cliffs.
Week by week, a different part of the text was looked at with a focus on expression, working at different levels and dynamics of movement. Work was created at individual, paired, small group and whole class levels. Below is a selection of photographs taken over the five sessions.
