@Caterham.High.SchoolCaterham students have been using their cooking skills to make delicious dishes at home. They were tasked to send pictures of the dishes they made from the recipe sent to them by their Food Tech teacher Ms Buxoo, or a dish they made themselves. Some students have been baking traditional dishes from their home countries. They all look so delicious, well done to you all. Keep cooking.

@Caterham.High.SchoolSome of you may have seen the news report on BBC 1 regarding how deaf people are coping with communication at the present time. Lots of people in public places, like supermarkets, are now using face masks to try to stop spreading coronavirus. Masks which hide your mouth as you talk mean that deaf people cannot lip-read. This is one of the most important ways that deaf people get information when communicating There is a really helpful and interesting video about this, made by deaf people, on the BBC website, which shows the impact this can have on a deaf person. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-52659083 At Caterham, staff who usually support deaf students in school, have been working on ways to help everyone communicate in safe and deaf- friendly ways. We want our students to feel confident and included as they start to go back out into the community. Ms. Welling, one of our communication support workers (CSW), has been designing and making fabulous deaf-friendly masks that allow people to see mouths and lip-read! It would be great to see these kinds of masks used more widely in public.

@Caterham.High.SchoolThe Empathy Lab Family Activities Pack launched today 18 May https://www.empathylab.uk/family-activities-pack The activities are simple and hopefully fun. They are focused around helping children and families to understand more about empathy and seeing through the eyes of others. Families can do them together, they don’t need to print anything off. They are not focused around specific books and all you need as a minimum is some scrap paper and a pen or pencil to take part.
