Last October 11th, coinciding with the Erasmus Days, CEIP Carlos Cano organized a inclusive gymkhana in collaboration with the school´s students families, technical team of COCEMFE and monitors of Espiral association, with the aim of finding barriers in the access and participation in the school garden.

First thing in the morning, the children went on a visit to the Espiral association to see the spaces enjoyed by the children who come to the association and what they use to do in their free time.

The main activity took place in the schoolyard of CEIP Carlos Cano, where the activities were divided into different play tests, all of them focused on analyzing the degree of accessibility of the garden. and reflect on possible improvements that could be made so that anyone who wants to visit the space can do so without finding any barriers.

Some of the barriers detected included the fact that the patch are at ground level, which makes it difficult for people with mobility problems or reduced mobility to work the land or collect the crop. unstable ground with many difference levels, steps to access some areas, etc.

After the Gymkhana, the classroom reflected on the difficulties encountered and the possible improvements that could be made to make the garden accesible for everybody.

On the same day, children of the Espiral association went to the school to visit the garden and participated in the barrier detection gymkhana.

This activity is part of the programming of the INCLUDL Schools activity  S-L Project, in which the UDL approach was used to carry out each of the tests of the Gymkhana.
