In Year 4, we have been reading Ted Hughes’ book The Iron Man. We have completed many tasks based on the story including writing instructions to explain how to make our own Iron Man/Iron Robot. We had a fantastic time working in pairs to design and create a robot out of recyclable materials. The children helped one another and created some excellent robots in the literacy lesson. We also described the features of our robots and explained to the class how our robots work.
This also linked to our Global Goal work in school. Global goal 12 .
Consumption (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) we learned that the energy used to create packaging is wasted when the package is sent to the landfill rather than recycled into a new package or another product, contributing to high embodied greenhouse gas emissions.
So our recyclable robots are helping to save the environment too!
