On Friday 28th September we celebrated Disability Awareness Day.
We thought about our similarities rather than differences.
We studied famous people with disabilities and learnt about their achievements and how they overcame their individual difficulties. Look out for some of the people we studied in the new photos around school.
It was a very inspirational day for all of us.
“It’s incredible how Stevie Wonder performs. He’s worked really hard. It’s inspiring!” Rachel Year 4
“On Disability Awareness Day, we learned about a very inspiring woman name Freda Kahlo. She suffered from polio at the age of 6 and at 18 she was in a tram crash, which left her bed ridden for a year. While in hospital, she started to paint her cast . Freda is a well known artist . We are similar because we all love art.” Blue Class Y5
“We learned about Stephen Hawking. He couldn’t speak but he never gave up. Stephen Hawking learnt about space and the black hole even though he couldn’t speak.” Orange Class Y2
