Caught in Charlotte’s Web

The children in Year 4 have really thrown themselves into the study of E. B. White’s Charlotte’s Web and have enjoyed exploring the text through playscripts and drama. Immersing themselves into the roles of each character has helped to bring the story to life.

Farm life is a part of Year 4 at the moment, with eggs being incubated on the side of the classroom and their very own ‘Charlotte’ keeping an eye on the children from the corner of the room. Careful analysis of this text has encouraged the children to think carefully about themes that extend beyond the classroom, such as love, friendship and sacrifice. Writing in the style of E. B. White is the next challenge for these children, who have enjoyed developing their English skills with careful analysis of this classic text.
