Hudson Spring 2016

The Hudson River flows through New York. There are many industries located along the Hudson, and they dump their waste into the waters of the Hudson thus polluting it. The government has taken action and passed laws to stop this pollution.

This week’s class broadcast by Hudson (year 4) is all about stories, poems and fables. First, listen to the children read the poem Girl and a Tree by Carol Ann Duffy (you can also read it here) and then write their own stories.

Later on the children play a game of 21 Questions (can you try to guess the animal before they do?), talk about Miyazaki’s film Spirited Away and read two of Aesop’s Fables. And finally, listen to Mr. Sheffield’s choice Desert Island Disc.
