Welcome to Arran Class
Hello and welcome to Arran class!
We are based in the FE Campus building and are a mixed year group, consisting of five students.
We follow a bespoke curriculum and work on functional skills, out of classroom learning, arts and crafts sessions, yoga and relaxation, sensory sessions and daily meal prep. When the students reach Year 14, we try and work closely with external agencies and families and start looking at the transition out of St Andrews and in to their post 19 Provision.
We work very closely on the range of targets set in their EHCP and we try and offer a broad and balanced curriculum that prepares them for their next steps, but one that is also fun, engaging and suits their individual needs.
On Monday we had a visit from the Owl Man, Bob and he brought with him three beautiful owls, Archie, Gizmo and Spike. All FE students gathered at Campus and listened to Bob talk about his owls and engage in the Owl Experience. Most students fully engaged in the experience and loved seeing the Owls, other students weren’t as keen, but still sat amongst the group watching the others involvement. It was a truly wonderful experience for us all and I think most of the students thoroughly enjoyed the session.
This term we have been doing a wide range of activities, some of the students have been visiting Springwood Library in Oakwood, where they enjoy listening to staff read stories. The students particularly enjoy choosing the books and selecting which book they would like to borrow.
The students have been taking part in some daily stretches and supporting other students with their physio exercises.
In PHSE, we have been focusing on hand washing and the students have all been taught the correct way to wash their hands. This is then followed up in functional situations and the skills are reinforced throughout the school day and forms part of their functional learning.
