We wrote letters to Hogarth, a boy in the story, to give him advice about his Iron Man problem!

After reading the book we created this beautiful quilt, just like Cassie did in the book.

 

 

 

'FArTHER' by Grahame Baker-Smith. 

 

We enjoyed designing our own flying machines as the characters do in 'FArTHER' by Grahame Baker-Smith.
