Welcome to Term 1!
Welcome Back to School Everyone!
A special welcome to the new staff and students who have joined us in The Hive. We are very excited to see you all and are looking forward to getting stuck into a new academic year together.
Our theme for the next two terms is ‘Music’. We will be exploring an eclectic range of music and discovering the musicians and composers responsible for creating them. We will establish our musical preferences and create ways to communicate our preferences. We will have a go at creating and recording our own music and hopefully have the opportunity to enjoy some live musical performances.
We are hopeful that a certain level of normality will be achieved this term, which will allow us to resume some of our lessons to really work on our independence. We will continue with our weekly cookery lessons but hope to be able to plan regular trips to the supermarket for us to buy our ingredients.
ASDAN will continue to push us to develop our cognition and communication skills. We will be covering units concerning getting on with other people and engaging with the world around us. These tie in nicely with our RSHE topic for the term which is Relationships. We will look at the relationships we have in school and with our family and think about people who help us.
Important aspects of the curriculum which are unique to The Hive are our work experience and transition sessions. We will have quite a few students leaving Claremont this year and so a lot of work will be done with them to explore all of the potential options and to prepare them for the changes ahead. We will all delve into the world of work and consider areas that we would like to have some experiences in.
We will continue to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle with our daily physio routines and weekly PE sessions. We are also hoping to have more sessions with Bristol Bears.
We are going to have a very busy and exciting couple of terms!
