Today the day finally came when Y4 DT started their new class novel, the Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane! The children came into their guided reading lesson this morning with a very exciting prediction task waiting for them and a brand new copy each, of this fabulous novel!
With moving operatic music sending a poignant tone through the classroom, the children opened their packages to start their work on the book!
We started by making predictions about what we think the book might be about! We had some absolutely fabulous answers!
The children were excellent at using the evidence available to make their predictions. Equally, we had some brilliant prediction phrases like “further evidence to support this is.”
