Joint English and Guided Reading!!

 

As today is the last day of the half term, we thought you might enjoy a little treat - to watch the film of Charlotte’s Web!

We know you still haven’t finished the book yet but you will be doing some work after half term to compare the book to the film.

 

The film is available on Netflix and Amazon Prime so if you have access to either of those, watch it on there.

 

If not, another version of the film is available (for free) on YouTube:
