On Wednesday we learnt about different disabilities. Lots of us didn’t know that you can have disabilities that you can’t see, such as learning disabilities or health problems inside. We all knew about physical disabilities and the Paralympics.
We read a story about someone in a wheelchair who went to a Special School. They couldn’t play competitions with other schools because the games weren’t suitable. So the teacher found a game called Botcha, which they were all great at. They even started a local league and then went through to the Nationals in London.
We learnt that it’s important to empathise with someone with a disability, and to help when necessary, but that disabled people want to be as independent as possible too.
