Y5 Children's Mental Health week

As part of Children's Mental Health week, we have been exploring the book 'Wonder' by R J Palacio. The story tells the incredibly inspiring and heart-warming story of August Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters the fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time. The children compiled lists of synonyms for 'brave' and also thought about their own personal qualities which help them to be courageous and resilient. We then painted self-portraits in the style of 'Palacio' which we then surrounded by this emotive vocabulary representing the theme 'Find Your Brave'.
