The Iron Man Reading Challenge

Hello everyone,

I hope you’re all having a fantastic half-term, spending quality time at home with your families, keeping safe and well.

I thought that I would set you a bit of a challenge for over the May half-term. I have recorded an Audiobook of The Iron Man by Ted Hughes and set questions for you to have a go at answering to see how much of the story you have remembered and understood – we call this understanding ‘comprehension‘.

Please find the Youtube links to each of The Iron Man’s five chapters below. Listen to them carefully and then answer the questions beneath them for your year group. Once you have answered all of the questions from each chapter, check to see how many you got right and email your Teacher with your score.

Good Luck and see you soon,

Mr Sellers
