Welcome to class Hudson!
The teacher in our class is Miss Sharkey and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Bastow and Mrs Mooney. There are 11 pupils in our KS4 class; we are a mix of year 9, 10 and year 11 pupils.
This term we will be learning about Sport as part of our English topic and The Human Body in Science. We will also be learning about money as part of our Maths topic. We will be going on a trip to our local Tesco and doing some shopping so that we can practice our money skills in the real world. We work towards gaining our OCR certificates at the end of year 11.
We enjoy taking part in Vocational learning days on a Thursday which helps us to work towards our ASDAN qualification. For our first term we will be taking part in ‘Cook it’ and will be working on gaining skills in the kitchen and following a recipe.
This term we have been working very hard in maths learning to identify coins and notes and how to use the correct amount to pay for items in real life settings. Our English topic has been sport and we have been learning about different sports and have created our own sports story on being in an Olympic race. We have really enjoyed learning about the human body in science, we have learnt to identify the different organs and where they are located in the body.
Our favourite days in the week are our Vocational Days, Thursday and Friday. On a Thursday we have been learning how to follow recipes and cook a range of Indian foods in preparation for our celebration at the end of the term. We have also been visiting the local Tesco store to purchase ingredients needed for our recipes. On a Friday we have been working towards our planned Christmas musical within art, music and drama!
