Disability Awareness Morning

On Friday 22nd April, John McCorkell visited the school.  He led a whole school assembly helping us to understand that we are all unique, and a disability just means that we do certain things differently. Afterwards, he held sessions with each of the classes.  Owlet, Owl and Panda classes learnt how to communicate if we couldn't hear or if we couldn't see.  Rhino class also learnt how to identify objects and people using just their sense of touch, and how to simplify written sentences so that they could be represented in symbols and sign language.

After leading the sessions, John was our guest of honour, cutting the ribbon on our updated Owl Class outdoor area.
