Steps Half Termly Review
In Steps pupils have been making good progress across all fronts. Reading and Comprehension skills have improved and pupils have accessed numerous texts and written stories as well as concentrating on basic phonic skills.
Numeracy skills have also improved and real life situations like a walk to Tesco to buy some food to cook for a lunch in Steps have helped pupils experience real shopping and dealing with money.
Learning for Life skills have been honed in numerous practical sessions such as loading and sorting washing, making a hot drink and on our excursions where road safety was practised.
In Science there have been experiments regarding the human body such as measuring pulse rate after exercise (which the pupils enjoyed!)
Pupils have also had a chance to choose art, IT, DT, cooking or performing arts. In Enterprise, Year 10s have made items for sale for the market stall run by The Valley School at Stevenage Indoor Market and have also helped to run the stall.
A few pupils are also taking part in the school production, “School of Rock” which should be a sensation!!
Overall, staff and students working hard as a team, learning and achieving.
