Avocet class is the Secondary Specialist Autism Provision at John Grant School.

This year has brought its challenges, but the students have done amazingly well to settle back into school life and class routines.

This year our students are learning life skills; each morning they are paid to complete a job, they keep their money safe in their wallets, and when it is time, they pay for their snack at the class shop. This all links up with our Maths lessons where we are learning about money and time.

In science, we have a lot of fun conducting visually stimulating experiments, encouraging our students to perform them individually or as a group.

In English, we have been developing our reading, writing, speaking and listening, within the topic of ‘Sea Life’, where our students learn about the weird and wonderful creatures that live in the sea.

In the new year, we plan on introducing trampolining during PE lessons. Our students will get the chance to learn new skills and routines, and work towards achieving certificates.
