Provision for Hearing Impaired Children: A Walk into Town

Mrs Murphy and Miss Meade took their P-HIC classes for an educational walk into Hornchurch town centre. The aim of the visit was to expand the children’s language and understanding of local amenities. They encountered local shopkeepers (the baker and the butcher) and withdrew some money from the bank to spend in the supermarket on a snack and some food for the ducks. The children particularly enjoyed a visit to Hornchurch fire station where they dressed up as firefighters and had the opportunity to use the hose. Our hearing impaired pupils met the street cleaner, the postwoman and lots of other friendly people around Hornchurch; people who help us in our daily lives and carry out essential work for our local community.
