Read All About It!

Y4 Readers

This half term, the Year 4 topic is ‘Read all About it!’

This topic has an English theme and the children are reading a lot of books to inspire them. They have already read the books ‘Toro! Toro!’ by Michael Morpurgo, ‘The mysteries of Harris Burdick’ by Chris Van Allsburg and ‘Blabbermouth’ by Morris Gleitzman. They will soon begin George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl.

Fantastic work has already been produced, children have written a persuasive letter in the style of a character. They have created their own short stories to go with the pictures from Harris Burdick which are fantastic to read.

Over the next few weeks, they will be looking at the illustrations created by Quentin Blake and using them as inspiration for their own characters.

As part of the topic, children will be entering a national competition which could see children getting their original story illustrated and published. We look forward to seeing the work that they create.
