Watch this video about Helen Sharman. She was the first Briton to go into space. That is an amazing achievement and she is a fantastic role model.

Diversity

Disability. 

As part of Schools Diversity Week today we will looking at how some people are different and unfortunately not able to do some things as easily as you can.

This is called having a disability. They may not be able to move, see, hear or understand things as easily as other people. This can make their life harder and can make it more difficult for these people to achieve their goals.

Try doing something blindfolded and see how difficult it is.

Try talking to someone with headphones on to understand what it might be like to live with hearing loss.

Some people with disabilities have achieved great things despite their difficulties. This video shows some amazing athletes who have achieved great things even though they had a disability.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vlEJBBj12k

Complete your ToDo on Purple Mash. Imagine you are an athlete with a disability who has won a race. Complete the Mash Cam and write about how you would be feeling.
