All children receive an education. For many this is in a ordinary school in an ordinary town with their ordinary friends.
This guide to the Looking Up Book guides the viewer through that ordinary school day.
This second book in the Looking up series is for children to share with their grown-ups. Our approach is to use pictures rather than words to convey a message. Some of the children in this book happen to have Down's syndrome and some of them don't. This publication is a celebration of diversity and inclusion showing that we are all more the same than different.
Wherever you go to school your day starts the same: Breakfast and don't forget your PE kit!
When you get there it's nice to see your friends, oh and don't forget to hang your coat up in the right place!
Your morning can be so busy! Full of learning, laughter and fun! But remember pay attention to your teacher won't you?
There's all sorts happening in your day. I bet this chap is thinking, I wonder if one of those number pebbles will fill the hole in my bucket?
Sharing, playing, discovering and learning side by side is what it's really is all about!
Oh that was a busy morning! It's time to tidy up, wash your hands and now for lunch!
So to the afternoon - team work! Just ordinary kids doing ordinary things together.
Together we are always better but just twice as noisy!
It's been a busy day but you still have to tidy up.
I wonder what's for tea?
The going to school book takes the reader on a journey through a typical school day, showing children having fun and learning alongside their peers. The book uses photograpghs submitted by the families of Cornwall's Downs Syndrome Support Group. This publication is a celebration of diversity and inclusion showing that we are all more the same, than different.
"I challenge anyone not to want to go to primary school after spending time with this beautiful sunshiney picture book. This is the perfect way to dispel any small child's fears about big school and it may calm the grown-ups down a bit too. After reading I want to try ALL the activities, particularly lunchtime. It's not just children with Down's Syndrome who are visual learners - nearly all of us take in more from pictures than words - what a great idea, what gorgeous kids, what a useful thing you've made CDSSG. Thank you."
Sally Phillips, Actress.
This is the second book in the Looking up series: The original book was written for new parents of babies with Down's Syndrome and continues to be succesful. The natural progression for us was to create a book about the next major milestone of going to school as well as promote inclusion for all children.
The Cornwall Down's Syndrome Support Group is a charity run by families affected by Down's Syndrome who live in Cornwall. We offer families a chance to meet, socialise and share information, friendship and support.
