Think, Write, Create!
This week in immersive reading, Year 4 have read chapter 3 of Charlotte's Web. The beginning of this chapter describes Mr. Zuckerman's large, old farm. The children listened to and read very carefully the description of the farm and then drew what they thought the barn would look like, by highlighting the descriptive words and sentences in the text. They learnt some new words for farm equipment like 'pitchfork', 'monkey wrench' and 'scythe' and included these in their drawings. Finally they labelled their pictures.
"The barn had stalls on the main floor for the work horses, tie-ups on the main floor for the cows, a sheepfold down below for the sheep, a pigpen down below for Wilbur, and it was full of all sorts of thing you find in barns: ladders, grindstones, pitchforks..."
The children created some wonderfully detailed drawings, using the information given in the book, as well as their own imaginations! Well done Year 4!
Why don't you watch the 1973 film version of the story at home?
How is it different to the book?
