Rabbits is one of the four KS1/KS2 classes and is part of the Semi-Formal pathway within the Academy. At present there are 7 students within the class; 6 boys and 1 girl who are all KS2
The ‘Rabbits’ are a vibrant group of students, who are playful and inquisitive. They enjoy learning through hands on experiences and play. All learners within the class have a range of complex learning needs related to communication, social interaction and self-help skills; most of the class have a diagnosis of ASD or ADHD.
There are three members of staff in Rabbits: Miss Victoria Tewson (Teacher), Miss Eden Weaver (Learning Support Assistant), Mrs Caitlin Bradbury (Learning Support Assistant).
The children access most of the curriculum in their own classroom space which is a calming and stimulating environment; but full advantage is taken of the Academy facilities including the kitchen, hall, soft play, outside area and sensory room. The students study English and Maths both 4 times a week with regular reading and phonics sessions too. They also learn about science and history and geography through a cross curricular approach. Opportunities are also taken to explore the wider community and local area, thoroughly weekly community visits in the minibus, They have opportunities for PE and sport, horse riding and swimming. The students explore their creative sides through art, cooking, music and drama. We are continuing to develop our Preparing for Adulthood curriculum which develops skills, knowledge and understanding within Employment, Community, Independence and Health.
We communicate with home daily through the use of planners. Often when a student has done a piece of work that they are proud of we will send a copy home that day so that they can share their success.
