The Year 6 class have been reading 'The Cay' by Theodore Taylor as their novel study this term.
We have spent time discussing and thinking about the themes of racism and discrimination. After finishing the novel, we worked in groups brainstorming social justice issues and things we would like to change in our world. We then listened to Martin Luther King's 'I have a Dream' speech before writing our own poems. During our leadership focus in Term 1, we learnt about Martin Luther King and we enjoyed writing using his ideas.
