Eye/Deaf Week

The Fairfield preschool children have been learning about vision and hearing impairments to develop their understanding on other peoples’ needs, how we can help each other and what life would be like if we needed support from wearing glasses or hearing aids.

The children read a story called “The Short-Sighted Giraffe” Giraffe can’t see further than her own nose and when the animals make her some glasses she refuses to wear them. We followed on with this learning and imagined we could not see very far, what would we miss out on?
