I was going to suggest an activity for KS2 which is a sponsored silence for I Can a charity for children (see below) but I wondered if I could justify it in terms of literacy or should it be PSHE? Any thoughts? ======= I CAN’s Sponsored Silence is a fun way for School children to challenge themselves to stay quiet for as long as possible and use their own creativity to find new ways to communicate. By taking part in I CAN’s Sponsored Silence children will learn to empathise and develop an understanding of children who may struggle to communicate. After participating in the Silence, everyone will appreciate how important it is to be able to talk and be understood. Every penny raised will go towards helping the one in ten children in the UK who struggle to communicate. Taking part couldn’t be easier.
