The Power of Words and Pictures

This week Year 2 have wallowed in one of Miss Lafone's favourite books, "Wild" by Emily Hughes.  The book demonstrates the importance of embracing differences.  It shows how what seems normal to one person can seem so strange to another and how we should celebrate these differences rather than inflict our own norms on others.  We explored it through the power of its stunning pictures.  We also learned to use fraction bars to find 1/2, 1/4, 2/4, 1/3 and 3/4 of a number.  Miss Lafone challenged us to sort characters into the good/ the bad and the middlies!  This got us really delving into each one and thinking about their motives.
