Please look at the slide show of the children's models and research.

The children had to find out about an important inventor, Louis Brallie, by asking questions about his life and work. After watching a short film about Louis Braille's invention they then wrote about him.

Here are a selection of their fact sheets.

Mrs Macintosh taught us a lot about Louis Braille and helped us to appreciate what it must be like to be blind. She showed us how to type and read braille and then all the children typed their names using the Perkins Brailler. The children also created tactile pictures and used some of their other senses to guess objects whilst wearing blindfolds.
