Disability Week

Last week children welcomed Tom Makin-Bell from Cheshire Autism Practical Support (CHAPS) to kick start a week of exploring disability and how the lives of those affected by disabilities differ to their own.
Children were challenged with various tasks, from exploring the impact of vision impairment on their ability to carry out day-to-day tasks, trying to eat without using their hands and spending the morning with their arm in a sling to appreciate the difficulties faced by people with physical disabilities. They also looked at how seemingly simple tasks, such as reading, can be affected by certain learning difficulties such as dyslexia. 
Children in the older classes participated in some Paralympic style activities (including blind football!), a workshop to further their understanding of autism and also tried some inclusive activities such as Foot Jenga!
