11SA have had a great first week back and have settled into year 11 extremely well. We are especially looking forward to the Osborne College sessions every Friday morning in preparation for the transition next year.
We will also be continuing to work on our ASDAN challenge folders in a variety of subjects and will be participating in Entry Level PE, focusing on independence in areas such as Basketball, Fitness, Boccia and Football.
We also had fun dancing and doing the golden mile in mental wealth this afternoon.
Here are some ideas for home learning relating to English this term:
- Practise giving / sending a message to someone
- Use writing, speech, signing, ICT, communication aids
10SL Spring 1
In 10SL we have been looking forward to a busy Spring Term. We have written a blog explaining what we have been doing so far and giving an idea of what we will be doing for the rest of the half term
We are working hard in English and Maths to prepare themselves for our exams by doing practice papers.
In Science we have been experimenting in purifying water that has been polluted with substances such as mud.
In ICT we have been practising writing and replying to emails.
During PE we have worked on rugby and team work skills.
RE lessons have given us an opportunity to compare different wedding ceremonies and Citizenship has focused on what gives one an identity.

This term we will be going to the café every week. We will be encouraging the students to purchase a drink and/ or a biscuit. This will help with their counting skills, listening skills and communicating skills. We have already been once this term and the students really enjoyed socialising together in the café.
In “How Does it Work” we are making collages with different materials like magazines and tissue paper. We create them every Wednesday with Gillian. In English we have been continuing with our phonics and reading. We have Food Tech every Thursday and we are learning about pastry. We have been making different types of pastry; such as puff pastry, filo pastry and short crust pastry. On Fridays we have been doing athletics with two sports coaches. Lizzy and Tom teach us how to sprint, throw javelin, hammer and shot put. It is lots of fun. Army Day was awesome. We especially enjoyed the obstacle courses.
Recently Osborne School took part in a whole school “Bake Off” in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. 9BR were very enthusiastic in their approach and a great deal of debate and discussions took place in advance. We watched some clips about the charity and the excellent work they do; then we watched a bit of the real “Bake Off” for inspiration. We went for a spiced apple cake and did some preparatory drawings for what we thought would be a good design. The class worked brilliantly as a team, helping each other and sharing skills and ideas.
The final creation had thick jam in the middle and sported a poppy seed infused icing with glace cherries on top. We didn’t win but had good fun making it (and tasting it after judging finished!). Paul Hollywood has competition!!!
