Hello my name is Andrea and I am the class teacher in Ocean Class. We are a Key Stage 4 class consisting of eight students, Davarni, Helena, Kieron, Michael, Oswaldo, Raeshaun, Raheem and Shequille. We are supported by three wonderful teaching assistants Caroline, Kim and Vondell.
The students have settled in extremely well, building friendships within their new class group and becoming familiar with their new timetables.
All of the students have Personalised Plans and these are addressed individually or in small groups throughout the week.
Our lessons include English, Maths, Functional Life skills, Physical Education and Key Stage 4 personal pathway options, which include Music, Media, Arts Award, Food Technology, Childcare and Design technology. Communication, social interaction and Emotional regulation are key elements within all of our lessons.
Many of the students will be taking part in activities that are beneficial to them personally, such as Advocacy Groups, Music Therapy, Intensive Interaction and The Lewisham Young People’s Project.
We are also becoming familiar with our lovely new building and are looking forward to the reopening of our Sensory room and ICT suite over the coming term.
I look forward to meeting with all the parents to discuss the new Education and Health Care Plans and working with the students throughout the coming year.
Should you have any questions please feel free to contact me by writing in your child’s planner or giving me a call.
