The wonder of 'Wonder'

Lesson: English

Class: Year 6 Year: 2016 - 17

This week, we have continued to enjoy reading 'Wonder'. In the story, Mr Browne (one of Auggie's teachers) gives his class a precept at the start of each term to go away and research. These are special sayings, or rules to try and live by. Mr. Browne's precepts play an important part in the story. We worked in groups to research the meanings of some of Mr Browne's precepts and how they relate to the story. We also thought about how we can apply these to our own lives. Each group produced their own poster about one of Mrs Browne's precepts. For example: "Fortune favours the bold." —Virgil, "Kind words do not cost much, yet they accomplish much." —Blaise Pascal and "Your deeds are your monuments." —Inscription on ancient Egyptian tomb. At the end of the week, the children thought of their own precepts and wrote them on postcards.
