Cycle 1 - Heroes & Superheroes

 

Cycle 2 - Fairytales Reloaded (Extended Unit Award units)

The aim of the Programme of Study this year is to continue to recognise the need for recovery work, this year focusing on social communication skills, understanding of relationships and life beyond school, including the world of work. In addition, work will target building confidence writing for a range of purposes including making links between the notion of the writer and their audience.  Through engaging with a wide range of texts, students will explore character, plot, key events and themes related to traditional and modern fairy stories and folk tales.  They will engage with appropriate PSHE issues linked to a range of relationships including an understanding of ‘real’ and ‘fantasy’.   Students will also engage with the changing nature of roles in society associated with gender at an appropriate level. Students' work will be accredited through the AQA Unit Award Scheme; units have been written to provide opportunities for students to develop their Reading, Writing and Speaking, Listening & Communication skills towards their next step exam. Each group will engage with a range of text most appropriate for them in terms of engagement and theme. https://www.evidenceforlearning.net/recovery curriculum/

 

 

 

Maths

Pupils are grouped in classes based on age, ability and previous accreditations achieved. Work is differentiated for pupils and they are encouraged to work as independently as possible. Learning within maths utilises spiral learning, so key concepts and skills are retaught each time to counter regression and then to increase difficulty. Pupils are given the opportunity to generalise the learning outside of the classroom and apply these to real life situations outside of Meadow. Pupils will only be entered into an exam if deemed suitable and appropriate by the Maths Faculty Leader and Class Teacher.

Home Management

Students learn to cross safely, demonstrated by planning trips and buying tickets. Students further improve their awareness of safety near roads and cars. They will improve their organisation skills, pay attention to their surroundings, recognising safe and unsafe situations and people. Students will gain an understanding of buying a ticket for public transport, to encourage greater independence skills. 

 

Students will be able to identify the necessary equipment needed and cost involved for a new-born baby.  They will be able to identify key stages of development and how to support the baby’s skills.

Students will be able to identify ways in which the elderly differ both physically and mentally from a teenager.  They will gain an understanding of the different types of housing that elderly people may need.  They will also gain an understanding of different attitudes held in society towards the elderly.

Students will have an understanding and appreciation of how to work independently on tasks and as part of a team. They will discuss their strengths and areas to improve on, giving constructive feedback while showing empathy to their peers. They will set targets and work towards achieving them with support. While working as a team, they will show when it is appropriate to joke and what type of behaviour is appropriate. When working on business and enterprise activities, students will discuss what local, national and international business are and how they are successful and how they use their profits.  Students will explore good and bad customer care and what customer service involves

When learning about Home Management, students will explore and practise cleaning and tidying in a home, the intention being that by the end of the course, students will be experienced in looking after their home (whether that be living independently or living with parents/carers). They will also be able to wash their own clothes safely and confidently. Students will be taught how to furnish their own flat and the areas that need to be considered when doing so; where they might get furniture from, how finances will be organised to pay for furniture and removals. They will also be taught how to manage home finances when moving into their own home, how to afford decorating and how to manage repairs around their new home.

Enrichment

Enrichment runs Friday lesson 5 and 6 . During this time it allows students the opportunity to experience activities that are not usually available to them. It allows them to develop their own interests and hobbies that they can continue to access at home, in the community or as they move on to other settings. Our students will be mixing with peers outside of their tutor class and year groups so that they can make new friends and mix with a variety of students and different staff which will promote social skills, communication skills and coping with change. 

Most importantly, we are offering students a safe and secure environment to take on new opportunities with supportive staff relationships, so that they have the confidence to attempt new things.
