T1 have been learning to make a packed lunch as part of their ASDAN Independent Living Skills. They chose their sandwich, panini or wrap and filling and wrote a shopping list for the ingredients. We then shopped for the ingredients and finally made and packed our own lunch.

T1 have been enjoying getting to know each other. There are 11 pupils in class and everyone has settled in really well, we are very impressed with the level of maturity of the young people in class. We have 2 teachers in T1 Gail who is in class Monday-Wednesday and Cherith who will be in class Wednesday-Friday. Our LSA’s are Tracey, Anita and Annie. This year we will be doing an ASDAN module on Independent Living Skills. In T1 we focus on functional literacy and numeracy skills such as reading menu’s and shopping signs and working with money and time. We are responsible for the Senior School washing so we all will be learning to use the washing machine and tumble dryer. We are learning about personal hygiene and will be using the school showers to practice independent washing and dressing.
