Hands tell the story.

CHILDREN at Exhall Grange School, in Ash Green, took part in the National Year of Reading and Touch Reading Fortnight this week.

The young pupils, who are both visually impaired and physically disabled, were visited by Barbara Jones, who is working on an HND in visual communication at Hinckley College.

Touch reading involves learning poetry with the help of Braille and three-dimensional pictures.

Mrs Jones said: "The children really enjoyed themselves and they were very good at transcribing the poems which I gave them."

School spokeswoman Carole Brookes said: "The children have all said how much they enjoyed themselves."
