Elmwood

Welcome to Elmwood!

Elmwood Class is a predominantly Year 8 Key Stage 3 class. In Elmwood, we aim to deliver a stimulating and exciting curriculum, tailored to meet the needs of each individual member of the class.

 

Our activities are centered around developing pupils’ communication and independence skills and we encourage all of our pupils to make a meaningful contribution to school life, according to their interests and abilities. Our lessons are highly differentiated and we make use of a wide range of individualised resources to make learning fun! 

 

 

Literacy within KS3 uses aspects of the Balanced Literacy approach to develop pupils’ reading and writing, with our learning focused on a high quality book of the week.

In KS3 we continue to focus on numeracy as a core subject, but we also begin to move towards functional maths; through which we promote mathematical thinking and transferable skills that can be used within the wider curriculum, everyday situations and the world of work.

At KS3 we develop pupils’ knowledge and skills in all curriculum areas, through a creative, topic based approach.  As part of Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) we encourage children to understand their emotions and the importance of friendships.

Pupils in Elmwood class have the opportunity to attend a local gymnastics club and swimming at a local leisure centre, or in our school pool.  Elmwood experience yoga sessions and food technology each week.

 

In addition, we have ‘career days’ and we also provide ongoing opportunities for pupils to choose and apply for individual jobs and responsibilities around the school. Pupils take great pride in having an individual role or job to do and focus on and develop the skills needed to complete or be part of these responsibilities.
