This week the children have been taking part in lessons in order to increase their knowledge of Autism. All year groups have learnt that people have different strengths and weaknesses and that some of these are obvious and some of these are hidden. Years 3 and 4 have been learning this through the use of a resource called ‘Woodfer’s World. These are story books which allow the children to understand that people view things in different ways. Years 5 and 6 have used a different resource called ‘100% Awesomes’ which is a comic book that has superheroes with different strengths and weaknesses and the children decided which superhero was best to solve the four problems in the comic. The children really enjoyed raising their awareness of Autism and asked some extremely thoughtful questions.
