Charlotte’s Web by E.B White
This classic novel for children, first published in 1952, retains its appeal for modern children. It is the story of Fern, a little girl who saves a pig on the family farm from being killed, and the pig’s friendship with a spider who lives alongside him in a barn with the other farm animals. Their lives are woven into the cycle of the seasons and farm life. We hear, as Fern does, their conversations, and see how life and death are a natural part of things.
It would be really useful if your child could have a copy of the book ‘Charlotte’s Web’ by E.B. White for our work in English. This will also be extremely useful if we are having to learn from home. Please don’t worry if you can’t get hold of a copy, we do have a few in school. We would prefer that your child doesn’t go ahead and read the whole book before the set lessons.
