This term the children will be looking at a variety of historical figures as well as looking at the text Wonder in English. They will be given the chance to write letters, inspirational speeches and diary entries.
They will also be taking part in a spooky writing competition in the second part of the term.
The book Wonder shares an incredibly inspiring and heart-warming story about a young boy called August Pullman. August is a ten-year-old boy.suffering from severe birth defects, including mandibulo-facial dysostosis and a cleft palate, which have left him with facial disfigurements. Up until now his facial differences have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade after his parents enrol him at Beecher Prep after years of home-schooling him.
The main theme in Wonder is Kindness. It helps us realise that a small, simple act of kindness can make a huge difference, and that we all have the ability to CHOOSE KIND.
The children are thoroughly enjoying reading Wonder and empathising with Auggie.
They are able to relate the story to real life and recognise that we all have differences and are unique in our own ways. They also understand that we should always treat others with kindness regardless of these differences.
