Fairway Primary Academy celebrate Dyslexia Awareness Week
12th October 2015
On Monday 5th October Fairway Primary Academy launched its Dyslexia Awareness Week by holding a whole school assembly. Leonie Ward the SENCO held an inspirational assembly celebrating the achievements of people with dyslexia such as John Lennon, Jamie Oliver and Richard Branson.
The focus of the week was supporting reading and pupils, teachers, support staff and parents were all involved in workshops and activities.
A group of pupils visited Peter’s bookshop in Birmingham where with contributions from the PTA , children were able to purchase ‘Dyslexia Friendly Books’.
The weeks work will culminate in a display in the entrance hall to celebrate Dyslexia.
Congratulations to all at Fairway for a successful week.
