As part of our Five Senses topic, our P1s were lucky enough to have a visit from two specialists in the Deaf Team. We got to try on goggles that showed us what it was like to experience different types of visual impairment and handle Braille books. Gail showed us a model of the inside of our ear and we got to try out different hearing aids, and Carol taught us some British Sign Language. It was a very interesting morning and we all really enjoyed this hands on experience. A big thank you to Gail and Carol!
P1/2 had a fantastic time on their trip to St Marks Park, where we put out our bird feeders and took part in an object hunt. We especially enjoyed see the birds and playing in the play park. On our return to school we used our experiences to make suggestions of how we might improve the park.
