In Class Two our Year 7 students work in a range of situations, including whole class, collaborative group and individual learning, working both independently and with adults. Students have an allocated seating plan according to individual needs. Students are able to work at an individual workstation when necessary.
Students are supported by two Speech and Language Therapists, one Occupational Therapist and two full time teaching and learning assistants.
Our day begins with meeting time when we use visual timetables to go through the day ahead, giving the students an opportunity to ask questions and share any news. Students take it in turns to read out the timetable and also to take the lunch register.
On Mondays we catch up on any news from the weekend and then complete some Speech and Language activities.
Tuesdays is ‘Times Table Tuesday’ when we practise multiplication tables and we also watch Newsround to keep up to date with events in the world.
Wednesdays is ‘Word Wednesday’ when we look at an idiom and also have some quiet reading time.
Thursdays is ‘Thunk Thursday’ where we think about and discuss a thought provoking question and also discuss an interesting fact.
On Fridays we complete some Occupational Therapy activities.
In Class 2, we have five one hour long lessons a day and these are mostly taught by the class teacher.
We have Maths and Literacy four times a week.
Science three times a week.
ICT once a week.
Mrs Calver teaches Life Skills once a week.
PE is mostly taught by Mr Sari, supported by Mrs Cesaro.
On a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday we have Enrichment activities at the end of the day. The students pick their own activities from a range of options which change each term.
Our class timetables can be found in the attachments section on this page.
We strive to meet the individual needs of students both within lessons and through intervention programmes that develop literacy and numeracy skills and address social, speech, language and physical needs.
