Termly Focus - Summer Term 2021
Posted: Apr 26, 2021
on: Senior 2 Termly Focus
Pupils in Senior 2 have made a great start to the term already. We are going to make the most of the summer weather and spend a lot more time outdoors this term. Our main topic is 'Minibeasts', so in addition to lots of science-based research and learning in class, we will be doing lots of practical investigations, in the school grounds and beyond. We'll be incorporating lots of Maths and English into this work too, so our functional skills will continue to develop.
We will also be finishing off our final ASDAN units, and carrying on with weekly P.E. sessions, as well as some 'Virtual P.E' and Boccia sessions. Our work-related learning on a Friday continues, with lots to keep the gardening team busy, including planting summer flowers, and fruits and vegetables we hope to enjoy later in the summer. Our takeaway shop has reopened too, so we will be very busy making and selling lots of Friday treats for staff and pupils across the school.
Some very exciting news is that we are going to be doing more Forest School days, up at Elmswell Farm. Research has shown that Forest Schools can help improve confidence, social skills, communication, motivation, physical skills AND knowledge and understanding, so we are really looking forward to this fantastic opportunity. And we will no doubt have lots of fun too!
What a great term we have ahead of us. As always, if yo have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch.
Marnie, Rob, and the Senior 2 staff team
