Welcome to class Scott!
The teacher in our class is Mr Goodwin and our teaching assistants are Mrs Havern, Mrs Graham, Miss McLaren and Miss Wydrych. There are 11 Pupils in our class from years 7 to 12.
In Class Scott we have an experiential curriculum in which we have a different theme/ topic each term. Each term we incorporate our topic into all of our subjects. We learn through sensory exploration which is a great way for our pupils to get really involved in lessons. In other words we like to get stuck in and messy a lot of the time!
We will also be working on our physical skills throughout the year using our specialised equipment in hydrotherapy, soft play and the school gym.
In Class Scott we have been looking at War and Peace which has been linked to all of our lessons. We have been exploring the story of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe as part of our English lessons. We have enjoyed role playing a trip as evacuees to the house where we find the wardrobe which takes us to Narnia. We have been having tea with Mr Tumnus and trying to defeat the white witch during the big battle. We particularly find being caught in the witch’s net quite funny and have learned to anticipate when this is happening in the story.
In PE we continue to access hydrotherapy individually. Last half term we practiced our coordination skills with different textured balls. This half term we have begun to work with the school physiotherapists to practice our yoga skills.
During theme we integrate our topic into different sessions in which we will explore various materials. Some examples of this are: creating explosion artwork using paint and elastic bands; using different vegetables to print our own poppy field artwork; and using clay to create our own medals of bravery which then go into the kiln to be fired ready for us to glaze.
