Our theme this half-term is based around the book ‘Wonder’ by R.J. Palacio. Through this theme, we will be learning to write letters and diary entries, ensuring that we write in the voice of the character and are able to empathise with him. One of the main themes in the book is ‘choose kindness.’ To explore this theme, we will be critiquing different pieces of art that are based around the theme of kindness, and using these as inspiration to create our own #choosekindness piece of artwork. To link to our theme in DT, we will be using our communication and teamwork skills to make a class marble run, and in RE, we will be learning about how religious scripture affects religious peoples’ morals, and how they put their beliefs into action. In Geography, we will learn about North America, including studying the geography of the continent and researching many of the different cities within North America to find out about their human and physical characteristics. This links to the theme as the book Wonder is set in North America.
