Year 4 have just started to read Varmints, our new class reading book for the spring term. We have just introduced the children to some of the characters and the settings.
This is a very mysterious tale that takes place across two contrasting environments. One is an ecological paradise where nature appears to be at one with itself. The other is a run down building site that is far from a green setting.
Our early literacy work in Year 4 has started to explore some of these ideas about the environment. We have asked the pupils to think about the main differences, and then to write a short passage to describe this. You can listen to a selection of these being read out in the recording below.
