Year 6 are learning about equality. Below is some information about the struggles many disabled people face when they need to go to the toilet. Here are some useful links:
This is about the campaign for Changing Places toilets
Have a look at the Mobiloo site. Below is me being interviewed in a mobiloo.
This is a blog written by Adam’s Mum. it explains her families frustrations at not being able to take part in family activities. It is called “Ordinary Hopes”.
It can be embarrassing talking about toilets. But lack of these toilets stops people going to work, to the shops, to restaurants, to concerts and even sometimes to see the doctor. Is it fair that we don’t provide the same facilities for some disabled people as we do for everyone else? What do you think?
This song will remind you how to wash your hands.
“Tops and bottoms, tops and bottoms,
In between, in between,
Wash around your fingers, wash around your fingers,
Now they’re clean, now they’re clean!”
Thank you to Jessica and Maja. They did a great demonstration.
“I Opened a Book”, by Julia Donaldson.
“I opened a book and in I strode.
Now nobody can find me.
I’ve left my chair, my house, my road,
My town and my world behind me.
I’m wearing the cloak, I’ve slipped on the ring,
I’ve swallowed the magic potion.
I’ve fought with a dragon, dined with a king
And dived in a bottomless ocean.
I opened a book and made some friends.
I shared their tears and laughter
And followed their road with its bumps and bends
To the happily ever after.
I finished my book and out I came.
The cloak can no longer hide me.
My chair and my house are just the same,
But I have a book inside me.”
This would make a fantastic song! Does anyone fancy having a go?
