Giving our young people experiences to practice skills in context is a vital part of supporting them to transfer their learning and gain real life experiences.
Learning in context includes visits to the local library and community leisure facilities using local transport. These types of experiences are rich in literacy and numeracy development across contexts.
We have been on whole school outings to the beach; where we explored the sand and swam in the sea. During our Science, Energy and Elements topic we took our curricular outing day to Glasgow Science Centre where we were able to put out learning into action. This term we are working towards our whole school camp where we will be going away to explore the great outdoors with exciting experiences that will challenge our adventurous side.
Additionally, we work in close partnership with a neighbouring school to share our learning experiences. Pupils from both schools enjoy accessing learning experiences together, where they can work alongside peers from a different school community.
Our residential pupils enjoy accessing clubs in the evening and experience a range of learning from gymnastics and trampoline clubs through to enjoying sessions in our local sensory centre.
