Hornbeam Class – Adventurers Department

Welcome to Hornbeam Class! We are within the Secondary department and follow tailored aspects of the National Curriculum. We enjoy hands-on, practical learning as this makes topics more accessible to us. We use a range of equipment and real-life experiences to make our topics come alive. We access hydrotherapy, rebound therapy, PE, French, science and topic lessons. Each week, we spend a morning outside in the Forest School area where we deepen our understanding of the natural world around us and link this to our science learning. We also love to get out into the local community, with one of our recent trips being to a Film Festival in Burton – we even got to go out for lunch and practice some of our communication and social skills. We celebrate all our successes and achievements and work hard to earn house points, trip points and receive weekly star of the week certificates in our celebration assembly.
