S5 is a busy senior class with 10 pupils, made up of 3 girls and 7 boys. There are two job share teachers and 3 LSAs. S5 focus heavily on independent skills and preparing the children for the transition department. The pupils each have a weekly job to complete such as setting the break table, washing the dishes and preparing break foods. We do a lot of functional literacy and numeracy but also really enjoy a wide variety of national curricular subjects such as Science, Art, PE and Home Economics. We complete an Asdan accreditation and the pupils work really hard all year to achieve the work in each module. This term, we are learning about Forces in Science. The pupils have really been enjoying some practical experiments such as ‘bubbleology’ to demonstrate buoyancy and gravity in Science.
