KS2 Resource Pack : Wonder – Empathy

What’s the story?

Wonder is the story of Auggie Pullman, a 10-year-old boy who longs to be ordinary. He does ordinary things – eating ice cream, playing on his Xbox. He feels ordinary – inside. But ordinary kids don’t make other ordinary kids run away screaming in playgrounds and ordinary kids aren’t stared at wherever they go. Born with a facial anomaly, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life. Now, for the first time, he’s being sent to a real school – and he’s dreading it. All he wants is to be accepted – but can he convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, underneath it all?

This resource pack includes:

Four activities for home learning or the classroom that help children celebrate our differences, learn what empathy is and share a message of empathy with someone important to them. Quotes from the book are included in the pack to help you start conversations.
