Drumbeat School & ASD Service

Welcome to Piccadilly!

We are a mixed year 7 and 8 class with 8 students. Our Class Teacher is Joe and we have 3 TAs called Kathy, Tammy, and Vincenzo, and our midday meal supervisor is called Patricia. We have had a great first few days and everyone has settled into their new class really well.

Our topic this term is:

Location, location, location.
We will be learning all about our surroundings and some of the history and geography of our local area and London. We will be creating art work around this theme, exploring and using a range of materials. This will also tie into our learning outside the classroom, and will inform the trips for this term.

KS3 Options:

This term all students in key stage 3 will be taking part in intervention afternoons on Tuesday and Fridays. Tuesday groups will focus on specific skills needed to develop independence where students are grouped according to need. Fridays is our hobbies afternoon where students choose a group they want to attend with support from adults.

PE:

We have PE on a Wednesday with our PE Teacher Marie. We also have a Yoga session on Wednesdays with a Yoga instructor. Please provide a PE kit (short, t-shirt, trainers), for this.

Outings:

We will usually be going on a trip every Thursday and will give more details before each of these trips. We are planning to explore local areas and travel into London to visit Museums and landmarks. This will allow us plenty of opportunities for experiential learning, practical activities, and developing a sense of the wider society we live in.

Important Dates:

Half term is from Monday 26th October until Friday 30th October.
