Welcome to Class 3.3

Hello and welcome to our page. Thank you for finding us on the website. On here, we will share exciting developments within class 3.3 and different events we take part in.

In Class 3.3, students will access an exciting and enriching curriculum and as such will participate in the following lessons across the school year: 

•          Literacy

•          Numeracy

•          Science 

•          Physical Education 

•          Swimming 

•          Art

•          Drama

•          Design Technology

•          Music

•          Religious education

In order to meet their learning needs and provide sufficient challenge, the focus for us is to begin to develop their independence, improve their ability to problem solve and reflect on their own learning. In addition to this, they are given every opportunity to develop their functional communication skills through use of symbol-supported communication in all lessons.

These videos are designed so that they can be accessed multiple times and paused and rewound they are short clips of up to 10 minutes and as before I recommend you watch them through first and prepare the resources you will need. Then once you understand what to do and have everything set up have a go with your child. Hard copies of supporting resources will be delivered to your home address on Thursday by our transport team. Until this arrives you can continue accessing last weeks learning tasks as well as you students personal learning tasks sent in the pack last week.

The idea of a visual timetable is introduced and children will answer questions to show they understand how it works. They will then do the same for their own visual timetable or diary.

Normally you would be preparing to return to school this week but unfortunately the school cannot open just yet.

I recommend you watch the lesson through first and prepare the resources you will need. Then once you understand what to do and have everything set up have a go with your child. As always, I would love to see what you have been up to at home so feel free to email me photos of your child’s work to stewart.harris1@themeadows.sandwell.sch.uk some of the best ones will be posted on the schools website!

 

I will also arrange for the content of this email to be posted on the class web page on the school website which can be accesses here:

In addition to this, I have also arranged for a pack of resources to be posted out to you. The resources and learning activities in this pack will enable you to work on some of your child’s targets from their Educational Health Care Plans.
