Primary Assembly 6RC: What a Pun-derful World

Room 19’s assembly was based loosely on the novel Wonder. Instead of a strange kid entering a class of "normal" students, it was about a "normal" kid entering a whole class of weird students. Mr Ryan’s Year 6 class are a very humorous bunch who make puns about everything!

Act 1: June (Jordan Hills) is overwhelmed by the weird students in his new class.
