wump world

In literacy our class enjoyed investigating this story. In centres around a fictitious green, natural planet called Wump world which is inhabited by peaceful creatures called Wumps. However the natural sense of harmony is shattered one day when the Pollutions arrive looking for a new planet to live on having just polluted and destroyed their own planet.

The book inspired us to write poetry, discussion texts and to use persuasive language. The childrens capabilities in empathising with characters and understanding moral dilemmas were developed through this work.

We also had a fantastic class debate whereby the children take on the roles of the Pollutions on one side and the Wumps on the other. Some interesting links with whats happening now on planet Earth began to emerge….
