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/recoverycurriculum/

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.

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.
