Our class book, ‘Wonder’ is all about a boy named August. Today we explored how he might feel on his first day of school and how others treat him. We explored how you should always be kind and treat everyone the same despite differences we all have. Differences are what make us all unique. We loved this lesson - especially as Mrs Dewey read to us in the story tent!
