Heymann Primary & Nursery School

Inspiring and motivating our children
to be the best they can be

Hopefully you have enjoyed listening to 'The Switching Hour' read by Mr Arch and now it is the turn of Miss Bussey and Ms Nash to bring the joy of reading to your home through reading chapters from 'Wonder' by R. J. Palacio.  We will aim to add two chapters per day - one read by each of us. 

This is an award-winning novel, with great messages about kindness, friendship and acceptance.  It is based in America so bear with us if some of the terminology seems a little unusual.  This book has been made into a film but please just enjoy the book to start with and, fingers crossed, we can all watch the film together if school re-opens.
