Qualification pathway – The Spring term sees the students develop their reasoning and problem-solving skills further but this time under the topics of time and measurement. Depending on the student’s ability this could range from understanding how to tell the time to the hour to understanding the 5-minute intervals on an analogue clock. As ‘Organisation’ is one of our Learning for Living targets, this lends itself well to this topic and real-life scenarios will be discussed to help the students with their futures.
For measurement we will be learning about weight, length and capacity in line with a Functional Skills specification. This will involve real-life practical applications including measuring furniture and room sizes, weighing food and appropriate amounts for one person compared to different sized families.
Life skills pathway – The students will learn about time and measurement and how understanding these topics impacts their lives. Organisation is heavily focused here and students are given opportunities to explore how to become even more organised and therefore, more independent in their own lives.
