On Tuesday 21st March, it was Down’s Syndrome Awareness Day. Everyone in school took part in various activities to celebrate the day. First we all came to school rocking our funky socks – even the grown ups! Take a look at a few of us.
You have the right to special education and care if you have a disability, so that you can live a full life.
From Nursery up to Year 6 we also designed our own special pairs of “funky socks” Move over Coco Chanel, Armani, Versace and co.!!
Down Syndrome Awareness Day has adopted the colours blue and yellow, so on Tuesday 21st March, the Millennium Bridge and The Sage in Gateshead were lit up in blue and yellow. To commemorate that we decided to make a whole school picture of the bridge when it was lit up. During the course of the day, every class from Nursery right up to Year 6 went in turn to the hall to add their bit to our picture. Below you can see some of us at work and the finished picture. We hope you like it. We are very proud of it.
We have also been busy making our Mother’s day cards, it takes us a little while as each part has to dry before we can put the next bit on. We also have to do the writing inside the card. We are very pleased with the finished product. Happy Mother’s Day to all our mammies, we hope you like your card and that you all have a lovely day.
