Year 6 ask Mr Sherin, our centre manager at Lyndhurst Dyslexia Centre, questions about his learning and how he feels towards Dyslexia. They think about family, strategies and changing attitudes.
This time, LDC Year 6’s generate questions together to pose to Dyslexic adults!
We discuss how adults might be able to give us an insight into learning, how different their experiences might be depending on their jobs and choices and we are curious to know things like what their favourite books are. How is being an adult with dyslexia any different to being a child or any different in general?
Horace and Ned get to grips with Soundbeam technology! More to follow …
This term Dea has been working on a project about rabbits! We started off by identifying reasons why she is interested in the subject, working through spellings and breaking up the process of creating a story.
Making an mnemonic (a device for remembering something – in this case a spelling) of Adventure Story, we used the words generated to form a story about rabbits, elephants, oranges and umbrellas! To accompany this story, Dea worked on a stop motion animation and used Soundbeam Assistive Technology to create a soundscape.

Syllable division with Harry and Lucy – we decide to go on a picnic and find words we can take with us following the cvccvc rule.
A video by Primrose, Frankie, Oscar and Elsa-Rose about their time at Lyndhurst and being part of the LDC team. They talk about their thoughts, feeling and journey so far with us, tips for teachers and learning strategies. They also give advice if you’ve just found out you’re dyslexic, thoughts on the future and moving to their new secondary schools.
Good luck to them and all year 6’s!
