Class 6 is made up of 8 pupils who are Key stages 2,3 and 4 and are ages 10-14. We are a mobility class and Physical Development underpins all aspects of our class curriculum. We follow the MOVE programme and spend a lot of time developing our key skills of sitting, standing, walking and transitioning. We start every day with our individual physiotherapy programmes. This prepares us for the rest of the day.
We follow a destination led curriculum which will prepare us for adulthood, as Secondary pupils, and we are learning to be as independent as possible. Some ways we work on our independence skills includes learning to use switches to operate equipment and using our appropriate communication aids to make choices that affect what happens in our day. We also use our individual communication aids to share our knowledge of the world; sharing experiences, telling jokes and asking and answering questions.
We love learning community skills and use alternative equipment to explore both our school community and local community such as self-propelling wheelchairs, power chairs and walkers. We have weekly opportunities to go to the local shops, bakeries and parks. We also enjoy learning through creativity and enjoy art, music, drama and technology.
