Our talented pupils have made a video of their Dyslexia Friendly School rap. We are working towards our SILVER award.
Get busy, know the shizzy, with Dizzy in the hizzy…..
*So you’ve got dyslexia!
That don’t mean you can’t go far.
Don’t dare think that you are dumb.
Find ways to make learning fun.*
What does dyslexia mean?
Words and letters aren’t as they seem.
Sometimes numbers too,
Decide to play tricks on you.
What can you do about it?
Give up, fold your arms and just sit?
Annoy others and grab and hit?
Stress out ‘cause you feel you don’t fit?
That’s not the way to go.
You have the right to learn and grow.
Let your teachers, parents and friends know.
‘Please help let my smarts shoooowww’
Use the tools all around the class.
When asked a question don’t always pass.
Take your time and have a think.
Your brilliance is on the brink.
Wear glasses if you need.
Cool coloured overlays can help you read.
Talk about how you feel.
It happens, it’s fine, it’s real!
We hope you enjoyed our rap.
Now I’m ready for a nap.
If you need help remember to shout.
Someone will help you out.
Dizzy is our new DFS mascot and is a very resourceful octopus!
