This week during guided reading, year 5 have been studying an extract from the book ‘Bill’s New Frock’ written by Anne Fine. It is a book about a boy who wakes up one morning as a girl and no one seems to notice-not even the cat!! The children were so enthused by this book that they came up with the idea to come into school today, if they wished, dressed as the opposite sex. This book opened up discussions about bullying and also taught children about transgender. I was really proud of all the children today 🙂
