READING FOR PLEASURE
We hope that you have been enjoying Michael Morpurgo's book 'Running Wild' as much as the Year 4 Team have. Our daily English lessons will continue to be based on this story so please try to listen to these extracts by the date shown. You might like to listen to longer sections in smaller chunks - just press pause or make a note of the time so that you can return to the recording later.

Our class book is based on a fictionalised version of real events. We are aware that Will, and the animals he meets, face some challenging situations and that, as with all of Michael Morpurgo's wonderful books, this text certainly pulls on the heartstrings.
Please note: During the audio story section on Tuesday 23rd February, one of the characters (Mister Anthony) uses a derogatory expression towards Will, using a word that we would not expect to hear the children use. This is part of the characterisation of Mister Anthony and the children should be reminded that this is how the character speaks and not language that we would use ourselves.
