Year 4 literacy lessons have taken an intriguing twist with our continued reading of the Edward Tulane story. The pupils have found Edward to be a fascinating character. We have been learning that the character is a china rabbit with a cold heart. He is very untrusting of people and is quite complex to understand. As our reading of the text has progressed, Year 4 have been observing how the character of Edward starts to change. We have been holding class discussions to think about the reasons behind this, and what Edward must be feeling.
Our literacy work has developed these feelings a stage further. Year 4 have written a series of postcards in the character of the girl who owned Edward. We have been describing how she is feeling now that she has lost her china rabbit. We have also written a series of thought bubbles pieces, allowing the character of Edward to come across as the plot develops. You can watch a video featuring some of this fantastic literacy work from Year 4 above.
