Longparish Church of England Primary School (Aided)

World Braille Day

Today we learned that braille is a special code made from six raised dots on a grid. There are sixty-three different combinations. The dots are raised so that blind people can read using their finger tips to feel the patterns of the dots.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We discussed how partially-sighted and blind people manage in their day to day life and then we challenged ourselves to remove shoes and socks with our eyes closed. Some of us used the braille alphabet to try to crack a secret code!
