Welcome to Class 6
Class 6 is the first class in Key Stage 3. In lower Key Stage 3 we set the scene and begin the secondary phase of pupils' education. We aim to consolidate skills learnt in the primary phase and set new targets and learning goals for the next stage of learning. Across Key Stage 3 we follow the National Curriculum, adapted for our learners. We encourage pupils to develop greater independence and seek to prepare them fully for the next stage of their learning journey.
Working closely with our upper Key Stage 3 class, we ensure that progression pathways are clear and that students reach their full potential, allowing a smooth transition into Asdan qualifications in Class 7 and beyond.
We have 1 pupils in class full-time, with 1 more joining us regularly for sessions. Nikki is our teacher and we have 3 teaching assistants: Sam, Beth and Steph. In class we follow the National Curriculum, specially adapted for all our pupils using a multi-sensory approach. We use objects, pictures, signs and symbols to support our learning where needed, whilst encouraging a high level of verbal interaction - sessions are lively and interactive.
We are the first secondary class in the shool and so try to take on more responsibility and start to become more independent in our learning. We run the school tuck shop, which gives us valuable opportunities to participate in real life learning and to have fun as well! We do our own shopping, cooking and money management, with jobs shared out amongst the class so that everyone is able to contribute.
In addition to our formal learning, we visit the Leisure Centre regularly for swimming and have opportunities to take part in a range of activities including gymnastics (at the local Gym), horse riding and stable management (at Old Mill Stables), plus a timetable of sporting activities often involving other schools. We also like to get out and about as much as possible.
In class 6, we decide our own rules and earn stickers, dojos and the treat box as rewards. We earn epic dojos for doing homework!
