We are a lively, fun and enthusiastic group of KS3 pupils who work within the fantastic Galaxy Department.
In GLA we learn how to be good friends. We enjoy working together and supporting each other in a wide variety of learning experiences. For some of our lessons we work with lots of different teachers in different classes – which is very new for some of us. We can express ourselves in Art, Music, Drama and Technology. We focus on the core subjects of: Maths, English, Science, ICT and PE.
Here we are in some of our favourite parts of our school so far.
We like to learn about our topics in different ways, including learning together in circle time and individually completing tasks. In the morning we say how we are feeling at the start of the day to develop communication and listening skills.
We choose what to play with when our work is finished as a reward. We can play with a range of toys and use the computer independently. We like to play outside. We help in the classroom by doing a job every day.
As well as working hard in the classroom, we have curriculum Enrichment days every Wednesday. Our Enrichment activities include;
Outdoor Education – canoeing, walking, indoor/outdoor climbing, Den building, Survival skills, forest school skills which help us build personal confidence, team work, relationships, and connect to alternative environments in a very positive and challenging way.
Horse-riding Sessions – these sessions help us build our core- strength and muscles, improve our posture and boost our confidence.
