Dyslexia Awareness Week

In the Pre-Prep, Mrs Barnes read the story of ‘Nonny the Nine-legged Octopus’. Nonny found he could use his extra leg to help his friends and to do many clever things.

Competition: There will be three prizes for the best three entries (a copy of this brand new story) and everyone will have the chance to have their painting displayed on the website gallery.

Draw or paint a picture of Nonny.

You may use any size of paper and any medium (crayons, felt-tips, paint or collage).

The website www.doctorpus.com has some pictures that may help you.

Please be sure to write your name on the back of the picture, not on the front and give it to your class teacher by Monday 2 November.

In the Prep School, Mr Lewis from Tonbridge School came to speak to us about the gift of Dyslexia. Scientists think that dyslexic people have extra space for creativity in their brains. Miss Northen made us some posters about famous people with Dyslexia. Our form tutors handed out some information so we can all understand a bit more clearly what dyslexia is.

Competition: We are looking for some Word Clouds(Wordles), Spine Poems or any other kind of poety /writing that explains what you understand about dyslexia.

To make a Word Cloud, go to www.wordle.net . As long as you have Java Scripts enabled on your computer, you can log into this free website. Type the important words that explain dyslexia. The more times you type a word (copy and paste), the bigger it will come out. You can choose your own colour scheme and print out your Word Cloud.

To make a Spine Poem, write the word dyslexia vertically on a piece of paper. Find eight meaningful words that fit in if you write them across the page. This is similar to an acrostic poem but a bit easier to do.

Otherwise you can write a paragraph or a poem in any way you like.

Please hand your entry to your form teacher by Monday 2 November.
