Celebrating SEN

At St Mary's we celebrated Sky Badger Day. Sky Badger is a charity that builds bridges between disabled children and the charities and services available to help.

We started the day with an assembly led by Mrs Spencer teaching us about what a disability is and what the term disability awareness means.

The children took part in lots of activities which helped us all to understand the importance and value of including people with different types of disabilities in school and as friends outside of school. The children learnt about how braille works as a form of communication and used it to translate the punchline of jokes; they learned British Sign Language and how to sign their names and they practiced lip-reading skills.

It was a brilliant day and the children thought carefully about how we can make our world inclusive for everyone.
