This term has been fun and fast paced for T2. We have got into the swing of our new routine and are doing all our class jobs with increasing independence and responsibility. The group are really enjoying BMC every Friday where we are learning independent cookery and household skills and getting out and about on trips around Belfast. Some of the group have been attending AEL for work experience and are making great progress each week. T2 have had lots of fun taking part in team games with the sports coach, swimming, yoga and going on regular walks to keep active.
This year T2 comprises of 11 lively and eager to work young people. Our class focus is to prepare the students for life after school. The T2 programme is a very practical one with an emphasis on developing independent, social, coping and life skills. We do this through a mixture of activities including using the local facilities, healthy eating cookery, and grocery shopping. This year we are attending BMC Millfield where we will be learning how to access the local facilities in our community. The young people will also have the opportunity to take part in work experience both inside and outside of school. This year, a small group of pupils will be going to AEL in Larne on a Monday to get work experience, and will take part in the NOW project on Tuesdays where they will work on social interaction, communication and team building. On top of this we will spend time doing recreational activities such as bowling, swimming and going out for nature walks. We have a very busy and fun filled year in store and cannot wait to get stuck in!
