Year 5 Disability Awareness Course

Posted on January 20 2017

City in the Community's (CITC) award winning ‘One City Disability’; was delivered by Manchester City Football Club’s Disability Officer Paul Kelly, or as everyone knows him ‘PK2’.  He took the children on a journey of discovery!  Through classroom sessions and practical activities, the children learnt about; visual, non- visual, physical, mental, born and acquired disabilities.  Inspirations were sought from our Paralympians stories - are very really superhumans?

The children took part in activities to develop their understanding of how it feels to be a person with a disability.  A fun ‘Mr and Mrs’ style game was used to test the children’s ability to lip-sink and answer questions, as well as playing ‘Goal Ball’, a team game specially designed for blind athletes.  Competitors were blindfolded and had to listen for the approaching ball - luckily it had a bell inside!

CITC are leading the way with this amazing and inspirational programme, they promote that everyone can access sport regardless of a disability.

Thomas -  “ He is an inspirational man and has taught about disability in a fun and exciting way!”
