The Enable Me Team recently visited Bishop Tufnell Primary School in Felpham, near Littlehampton. As usual, it was a busy day with nine back to back sessions.
I was either reading disability stories to the very young children or discussing “Hidden Disabilities” with the older ones. Having asked the children to draw a picture of a disabled person, I found that there were some very budding artists in my classes. I was joined on the day by Lizzie and Alex who were doing wheelchair relays and Penny who was showing the children how to play Boccia! Jan had bought her guide Dog “Harry” who was a great hit with the children whilst they learnt all about the life of a person who is blind. Alex was also with us as our Mini Bus driver and helping hand if we needed one.
I always enjoy working with children, capturing their thoughts and hearing what they have to say! Some things they do come out with are so funny it’s hard not to laugh, especially when the teacher who is at the back is giggling! The day went really well and the children were very well behaved and the staff very accommodating.
