Autumn Term 1 2018
This half term has seen lots of new students settling into 6th Form life and beginning a journey of development : learning a range of independent skills, taking responsibilty and becoming young adults. As a start we have been learning about Household Skills, Shopping, Using a Library, using the Gym, Health and Hygiene and all about Being a Young Adult.
Next term students will start work on their Open Awards Diploma in Independent Living, work experience and Survival Cookery !! As well as starting a Mini Enterprise Project for the Christmas Fayre !! Its all go in BLUE Group !!!
As part of our project on the Seasons students spent 5 weeks at Compton Verney on an art project where they learnt about Folk Art and used a range of different media to produce mosaic art pieces.
This term students have been working on Gardening for Pleasure as part of their Open Awards. They have been busy at Holloway Farm and in the poly tunnel at Drayton Ave growing vegetable plants to sell.
Spring Term 1 2018
This term Blue Group has been learning all about Winter !! We have made different types of snow, created a sensory area, been to the library to get books, sorted out winter clothes, and were crafty making polar bears. One lesson we did experiments to find out which animal is best insulated by wrapping our hands in fur, wool and fat to see which was the warmest. Last week we visited the Snow Dome in Tamworth for a hands on experience of the cold and snow !!! To celebrate our project we made a display board to reflect everything we had learnt.

Each of the students prepared the dough, mixed the marinara sauce, and decorated their own pizza! This fantastic opportunity is linked to several units in this years Open Awards, such as everyday food preparation and exploring the community.
Big thanks to Pizza Express Leamington!
