Welcome to Pinewood Class
Pinewood is Woodland’s key stage 4 class. The class reflects the broad spectrum of needs that we have in the wider school community. We consolidate the skills we acquired in key stage 3, and follow more personalised programmes and curriculums including sensory, physio and life skills sessions.
We become more independent and apply our knowledge and self help skills in a wider range of community settings and situations. We learn new life skills that enable us to increase our level of independence and allow us to lead fulfilled and happy lives.
Literacy and numeracy are powerful tools and they underpin every aspect of the curriculum. We look to exploit opportunities across curriculum areas and use them to apply and extend our literacy and numeracy skills.
Communication is very important to us and we continue to develop our communication skills using our personalised and chosen communication devices/systems. We continue to work on our interpersonal skills both in school and in the wider community.
