Welcome, we are KS3KT class. We are a small class of year 7 and 8 pupils who spend our pastoral time upstairs in KS3, as well as accessing the school’s specialist areas on a daily basis. Our classroom environment is tailored to suit our needs, providing a calm atmosphere where we are able to learn successfully. Our aim is for the class to become as independent as possible with their learning and life skills. It is important for us to have a pupil-centered approach to learning. To help and guide learning and understanding we use a TEACCH program.
We like to learn about our topics in different ways, including learning together in circle time and individually completing tasks.
As a reward for completing our independent and adult-lead work, we have choose time where we can pick an activity to develop our learning further in a fun, exciting and independent way. During our choose time we also have access to the sensory room and the balcony.
This half term in Literacy we are studying different types of poems and how to recite/perform a poem. In Numeracy we are focusing on a range of targets including developing our knowledge of number, addition and subtraction. In Topic lessons we have started to learn more about geography of our city, Derby. We really enjoy all of our lessons and work hard every day.
