High View Primary School

The pupils and teachers at High view Primary School were fully engaged and intrigued by the workshop. 

Here is what I did...

Year 2 teacher Ms Williams got involved with the sensory box experience wearing the JamJam Can! cape and blindfold. The children were filled with excitement as Mrs Williams was blindfolded and had to use her other senses to guess the items she pulled out of the box.

Tamika shared that sometimes she found gymnastics difficult. The class joined in together saying the repeated phrase from the book JamJam Can! Replacing the name JamJam to Tamika, “Tamika was a hero with a master plan when others thought she’d fail, Tamika said…”

 “I CAN!” Tamika stood in front of the class boldly using her most powerful voice to say “I CAN!”

 

Reinforcing the message

Reinforcing the “I can” message is a powerful tool to help build Children’s confidence. 

The whole class was keen to participate in the activities, it was important to try to give as many children as possible the opportunity to join in. 

The children had lots of their own questions and demonstrated their understanding through answering questions at the end of the session. 

On a personal reflection, the  most rewarding part of the workshop at High view school  was the Children’s comments after the workshop had ended.

 Lots of the children shared that they wanted to meet JamJam and spoke about how much they had learnt and enjoyed the workshop, some asking if I would return. 

It is a great joy to be able to share JamJam’s journey with children and to teach them about Trisomy 13. Raising awareness about disabilities is helping to breakdown barriers and enable disabled people to be more readily accepted.

Additionally, encouraging children to know that they can overcome their challenges with the right support and reinforce the message the message that it’s okay to be different brings me  tremendous satisfaction.
