Welcome to Austin Class’ webpage!
Our first term together has consisted of exploring ‘Wonder’, by R J Palacio. Within our topic we will be exploring whether it is better to blend in or stand out and discussing what is meant by the term ‘ordinary’. We’ve met lots of the characters already – including Auggie, the protagonist, and have begun empathising with them to understand the choices they have made and explore what it’s like to be a child, especially one who is starting a new school and is a bit different to his peers. So far we’re enjoying the novel and many of us have even watched the movie too!
Our Learning Outcome will include a book study in addition to artwork we create alongside this.
In maths we have been exploring number through place value and comparing numbers through use of symbols and by ordering. As well as this, I have been blown over with the enthusiasm some children approach their times tables with!
We have started the term off well and I am excited to see where the rest of the year takes us!
