Our first class book is The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. Chosen by Mrs Filippi (It's one of my little boy's favourites!)

The Iron Man came to the top of the cliff.
Where had he come from? Nobody knows.
How was he made? Nobody knows.

Mankind must put a stop to the dreadful destruction by the Iron Man and set a trap for him, but he cannot be kept down. Then, when a terrible monster from outer space threatens to lay waste to the planet, it is the Iron Man who finds a way to save the world.

We would encourage you to enrich our core reading scheme with our suggested reading lists. These are by no means exhaustive.
