Dyslexia Dress Down Day

Earlier this session our Learning Council worked with Mrs Stewart to tell us all about Dyslexia. Some of the children in our school are Dyslexic and we found out that it means these children may have to learn in different ways!

We also found out that lots of famous people and celebrities are dyslexic like Albert Einstein, Jamie Oliver, Jackie Stewart, Richard Branson, Ozzy Osbourne, Robbie Williams and Hans Christian Anderson.

Sheena and Lesley from Dyslexia Scotland came along to our Parents’ evenings and spoke to our parents about Dyslexia. They also gave us lots of goodies like pens, pencils, rubbers and even stretchy men!

We decided we would like to raise some money for Dyslexia Scotland so on Friday the 10th February everyone enjoyed dressing up as famous people who have Dyslexia. Each class received a gift from Dyslexia Scotland. We raised £248.40 which is a fantastic amount – thank you to everyone who took part.
