As part of our work during anti-bullying week, the academy, with the help of Jill from JustDifferent, helped children to understand disability.
JustDifferent workshops are delivered by presenters who live with a disability; their aim is to change attitudes towards people with disabilities and those who are different.
Jill delivered a workshop to our reception, year 1 and 2 children. She not only talked about what disability is, but what we can do to help which can be just as simple as understanding how difficult it can be as a wheelchair user.
Children were asked which course would finish the fastest- Walking or Wheelchair? Did you know the wheelchair team took up to 5 minutes longer than the walking!
