A very big thank you to Paul for delivering the 'One City Disability Awareness' programme to class 4R over the last 3 weeks. The children were engaged and enjoyed learning about different disabilities. We were very fortunate to meet Mike today; an amputee who lost his lower leg when an explosive device went off during his service in the army. What a courageous man! The children heard his very inspiring story today. Mike even took his leg off and gave us a 'Mike wiggle' with his amputated leg!

Look on our disability class page on the website for photos and videos of today's activities!

A GREAT PROGRAMME THAT NEEDS TO BE EXTENDED AND ROLLED OUT TO LOTS OF OTHER SCHOOLS!!

I'm so glad that you really enjoyed the disability workshop today. It was great meeting Mike and watching the crab football and the mushroom game. I could tell the children were having a lot fun whilst learning at the same time about different disabilities. It's a pity the programme only lasted 3 weeks!

Once I saw this T.V show about a little family and they all had dwarfism.

I'm sure that T.V programme must have given you an insight into what life is like for people with dwarfism. What did you learn from watching it?
