This week has been an incredibly important week at Eastbrook Primary School, as we have been celebrating Autism Awareness and Acceptance Week!
The aim of Autism Awareness and Acceptance Week is to help more people understand what autism is and also to raise awareness and acceptance of autism in our school. Children in Apollo have been doing lots of different activities such as, colouring their individual jigsaw pieces and making their blue ribbons in class. We also wanted to involve our parents/carers in this, therefore we have asked parents to decorate an hand template with their child and write on there, why they are proud of their child. All the comments were amazing!
Also, in mainstream classes there has been different workshops going on for each year group and children have been doing lots of activities and tasks to be able to understand what autism is and how we can help and support those with autism. In classes, the children have been decorating jigsaw pieces. This was to represent and show the children how each one of us are unique.
It is ok to be different!
