Year 4 Literacy Podcast


Year 4 have started the new term at Michael Faraday School with a new book: The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. We have been introduced to this fascinating character who is a porcelain rabbit, but clearly has plenty of human thoughts.

The pupils are only two chapters into the brilliant book, but already plenty of questions about the main characters have been asked. Each class member has produced a detailed spider diagram outlining some of the information that we know about Edward Tulane so far.

We have asked the children to write a character description of Edward. We wanted to know what he looks like and how you would describe him. This work will then develop to add some more detail about his rather confusing personality.

You can listen to a couple of pupils explain a little more in the recording below.
