What a week!

The first week back after half term has been a busy one with it being ‘Me and My Community’ week. This week the children were immersed in  lots of activities that taught them about many different communities. Here’s just some of what we got up to!

We began with a visit from a visually impaired man, Sid and his guide dog, Jamie. It was so eye-opening for the children to see and learn how people with visual impairments live their lives to the fullest with the help of others and their dogs.

We then had visitors who were teaching the children about LGBTQ+, what it means and how we can support anyone who needs it. Year 4 really understood the importance of the information!

Linda Gledhill did a talk with the children about hearing impairments. In this session, the children learnt what they can do to help deaf or partially deaf people understand. For example, they should look directly at the person, do not over pronounciate and use hand signals if you can (sign language).

Finally, through the week, Year 4 were chosen to venture out into Moortown Park to do litter picking! Unfortunately, they found lots of litter but I’m sure the people of Moortown will be very thankful. Here’s some photos of the children in action.
