Welcome to class Fuji!
The teacher in our class is Miss Wilcock and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Bastow, Mrs Mooney and Miss Gavriil. There are 11 pupils in our KS4 class; we are a mix of year 9, 10 and year 11 pupils.
Our curriculum is divided into academic studies on a Monday to Wednesday and Vocational and Creative Studies on a Thursday and Friday. We study for a range of AQA and OCR entry level qualifications as well as Arts Award, Duke of Edinburgh and ASDAN Bronze award.
We have also embedded Skills for Life into our curriculum, this is based around Communication, Team Work, Problem Solving, Self-Belief and Self-Management.We place equal emphasis on developing our academic as well as our social and vocational skills.
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!
