Week 10: Ironman challenge

The Ironman.jpg

This week's challenge is inspired by The Iron Man, by Mexborough's own Ted Hughes and we've got a special guest judge who will choose a winner!

Listen to the extract from The Iron Man below (read by a pupil from Montague Academy) in the video below and then draw, paint, or create some artwork go alongside the passage. Pay attention to what is happening in the extract and think about how you could bring it to life on paper - try to include as much detail as possible.

Our special guest is illustrator Chris Mould! Chris illustrated the latest edition of The Iron Man so he's the perfect judge. Chris has also illustrated lots of other books including Dusty Bones, Spangles McNasty, and A Boy Called Christmas.

Entries for this challenge are now closed but please feel free to complete the activity anyway.
