Novel by Robert Swindells
We are currently studying the novel 'Abomination' by Robert Swindells. We began our journey by drawing conclusions and inferences using only the front cover, blurb and past star ratings.
Chapter One introduces the main character - Martha Dewhurst. It appears Martha is a little different from the other children in her class. Can you see why?
As we read chapters two and three, we decided to take our learning outdoors and explored the theme of bullying. We put ourselves into Martha's shoes by recreating her journey home from school, focusing on dilemmas and solutions.
We then used our outdoor plans to create outstanding pieces of writing. Have a look!
