Teaching Louis Braille at KS1
Teaching Louis Braille at KS1 will feature in many schools’ 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.
