Hello and welcome to the Orange Class page of our website! I hope that this will become and area for us to stay in touch, share information and class activities together.

"we place great emphasis on developing each students life and independence skills" Orange class is a Key Stage 4 group and we have a class of 12 students this year, who are usually supported by 5 adults. We enjoy exploring the schools half termly thematic curriculum topics whilst placing great emphasis on developing each students life and independence skills. We work towards curriculum based targets, termly 'personalised learning goals' (PLGs) and complete OCR accreditation modules, where the credits students earn travel with them to our further education department (F.E) and count towards final certifications.

The adults in the room are very much geared towards facilitating independence in all areas, from academic work to tying a shoelace, giving pupils the time and opportunity to explore challenges, "we give our pupils the opportunity to explore challenges, make mistakes and learn from them in a safe and supportive environment"make mistakes and learn from them in a safe ad supportive environment. We learn new concepts through lots of concrete exploration and much of our learning take place away from the table top, in the wider school and out in the local community. Our students take ownership of both their class and the school as a whole, completing weekly jobs, working as a team to help their friends and facilitate the smooth running of the classroom. We also enjoy a wide variety of community visits on at least a weekly basis, including swimming sessions and trips to the library to select reading and topic books. However, everyone's favourite by far is our supermarket shopping trips and café treats to finish, which provide many opportunities to covertly develop our understanding use / of money and our communication based skills!
