Welcome to another week of home learning!

This is my cat Skye who you saw in my welcome back video. She is the mother of Amber, we rescued both cats at the same time. We don’t know how old Skye is because she was found living in a quarry with her tiny kittens! She is a beautiful grey colour and we couldn’t understand why she’d be living wild!

Now to work:

English

Our extension theme: Wonder by R J Palacio

This week is all about the moving story of August Pullman.

Due to the sensitive nature of the content of this book, it is strongly advised that parents monitor and support the reading and watching of clips throughout this unit with ongoing discussion.

When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.

Whether you have read the book before, seen the film or it is new to you, you will enjoy a week of delving into the world of Auggie.
