Living and Learning: ‘Me and My Community’ week

Thursday 10 November 2022

Last week, MPS had their first themed week of the year – me and my community. Year 3 had a busy week and learnt lots about different communities. Here’s just some of what we got up to!

We were lucky enough to start out week with a visit to St Gemma’s Hospice. The children learnt about the amazing service that is provided at the hospice and how we can do our bit to help. St Gemma’s has since been voted as our school charity for this year!

We had a visit from Linda Gledhill who spoke to the class about hearing impairments. We also learnt how to say our name in British Sign Language.

We also had a visit from the Royal National Institute of Blind People. We tried on glasses to see what it would be like to be blind.
