Deaf awareness week

As part of our Deaf Awareness Week we were very lucky to welcome some visitors today.

Mrs Starkey taught us some sign language to accompany a song we have been learning, 'You and Me is One Family'. Mrs Williams spoke to us about how hearing dogs can help people who are deaf with such things as alerting them when the phone is ringing or if there is someone at the door.

Flynn also demonstrated how he is trained to help his owner in other situations that may endanger people who cannot hear, such as a smoke alarm going off.

We all thoroughly enjoyed their assembly with us. Many thanks also to Mrs Lunt for her help in the assembly too.
