English in the Fours – ‘Wonder’

/, Pedagogy/English in the Fours – ‘Wonder’

In the Fours, we have started reading ‘Wonder’ by R.J. Palacio as our class reader. This week, the children have researched Treacher Collins Syndrome; the protagonist Auggie Pullman has this condition. They have presented their information in a variety of ways. To consolidate our learning, we did some ‘hot-seating’. The children asked a variety of questions about how the condition made ‘Auggie’ feel. This provoked a really lively discussion and the children demonstrated a real empathy for people living with disability and illness.
