This week, the children have been introduced to their new English text – Varmints. At first, we needed to define what a varmint was by making links with other words such as vermin. The first work all came from a book trailer – the link is below- where we were able to develop first impressions of the characters and the main themes of the text. We then looked at the book itself and were surprised to discover that it was a picture book. At the end of the week, we carried out a press conference – asking probing questions to the characters to make inferences about how they thought and felt.
