During Dyslexia Awareness week (14 – 20 October), the pupils at Appleford School wished to highlight that dyslexia was not just a difficulty with reading and spelling, but that dyslexia can bring many strengths! All pupils at the school wrote their names and added comments, (poems and drawings about their feelings about dyslexia) to cards and hung these, along with the names of other famous dyslexics including: Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Richard Branson, Steve Redgrave, Tom Cruise, Hans Christian Anderson, to an Apple tree in the school grounds. The tree was presented by an old pupil of the school and planted earlier this year.
