The Connect Centre
The Connect Centre is a group of eleven students. Together we explore, experience and learn through a module based curriculum which supports individual needs and abilities.
We always use a visual timetable to ensure we are in the right place at the right time, and we know what is happening now and next during our day. Objects of reference, photographs, Communicate in Print symbols and written instructions are used to help us understand and learn together.
We go our and about in the local community several times each week, where we learn about road safety and our life skills. We have enjoyed visits to the library, market, museum, shopping centre, pet shop, swimming pool, the park and local bus station. We now also have the wonderful opportunities of taking part in work experience Waddesdon Manor.
We love to learn new skills and are working hard to develop our life skills and be as independent as possible.
As a group we have lots of fun and achieve well. Our favourite lessons include Beyond the classroom, Creativity, Functional skills, Being active and Vocational skills, just about everything really!
