This term in English our topic is “Drugs and Bugs”.  We are learning about our health needs and explore the topic through reading, writing and communication skills.

 

This term in maths our topic is Number and money.  We will be learning how to use these skills in a functional way in the community and other practical settings.

 

Our Personal and Social Development topic is “Personal safety in the home and community”. We will be learning how to use equipment safely and how to travel safely.

 

Information about qualifications our pupils work towards:

 

In Key stage 5 we work towards gaining an ASDAN Entry Level Personal and Social Development qualification.

 

We take part in a range of work experiences and voluntary work at “Cup and Cake”, “Second handmade”, “The Hive” and at our allotment.

 

We learn functional skills in the community to develop our ability to apply the knowledge we learn in class.  We make lunch for all the 6th form students and staff once a week and we take part in weekly health and well-being sessions to maintain our fitness.
