To celebrate Jeans for Genes Day this week, the children have been asked to donate £1 to the charity in return for wearing Jeans for the day.
In Prep, we have held a number of assemblies to highlight some of the issues that can be caused by issues with one’s genetic code. We had a bit of fun trying to spot the Mr Man and Little Miss mum and dad from some little Mr Men babies by studying their genetic traits. We also discussed some of the traits that we have inherited from our family, such as eye colour, hair swirl and ear lobes before finally we watched some quite moving descriptions of life living with genetic issues.
