Kestrel class is a Key Stage 3 and 4 class. In our class communication and independence are embedded into the school day. We follow a topic-based Curriculum where we target the student's individual needs. We rotate lessons so that students are working in small groups as much as possible.
Our lessons include sensory story where students explore resources as well as finding symbols related to the story. Our circle time gives students an opportunity to explore their feelings and to try different strategies to help regulate themselves so that they are ready to learn. Music is very popular, and students enjoy playing along and singing. We will also do practical lessons such as cooking and art where students will be encouraged to be as independent as possible and explore ingredients and art resources.
We are working towards road safety and travel training activities where we can practice walking around our local community and visit places including local supermarkets and the Town Centre.
