Louis Braille: Famous Person Key Stage 1
Louis Braille will
feature in many schools' Key Stage1 curriculum whether formally through
the history curriculum or as part of one of the supported charities. He
may be mentioned in assemblies or he might be part of a broader
cross-curricular topic on senses. Either way it clearly offers pupils an
insight into the world of those who have lost their sight.
Many schools start this topic by showing what blind people can do better
than sighted people to counter the traditional notion of
disability. Anyone studying this topic
will get great support from organisations across the world. This
in particular is very helpful, as is
What Keystage history offers
are a few tried and tested lessons which adopt slightly different
approaches. As you can see from the titles, one asks pupils at the end of
the topic to watch a BBC video and then evaluate it. The results are
fascinating. The other seeks to consolidate pupils' understanding of
Braille's achievements but also to encourage their creativity in the way
they design a new museum for him.
