Social emotional and mental health, keeping ourselves both mentally and physical healthy.
Communication and interaction, asking for assistance, conversation, getting to know people.
Sensory and physical keeping ourselves fit and healthy and learning to use community facilities such as sport centres safely.
Autumn Term 2018
This term we have settled into our new class which is quite the change from school. We have to plan our week carefully as it includes food shopping, going to the gym, Leesbrook, drumming class café etc.
One of the high points has been deciding what to eat each day. This has involved compromise when we haven got our first choice, designing meals around external classes. It has been quite complicated.
Once a week we go to Springwood gym where this term we have concentrated on the cardio machines. All the students have made outstanding progress.
