Down Syndrome Awareness Day. RB and RM

1st March 2019
World Down Syndrome Day 2019. ... The date itself has been selected for very clever reasons; it is held on the 21st day of the 3rd month, which is a hat-tip to the uniqueness of the triplication of the 21st chromosome which leads to Down syndrome. 
One of our reception pupils brought in a lovely book that his Mum made him for his little brother. This was shared this with his friends from RM and RB and everyone had lots of questions about having a little brother with Down Syndrome. 
The children also participated in some activities including wearing odd socks to school and designing a pair of odd socks to represent Down Syndrome International’s Lots of Socks campaign.
