Pink Class

Welcome to the Pink Class page

Pink Class is a Secondary Sensory Class which focuses on academic learning as well as life skills activities. We have seven children ranging from Year 8 to Year 11. Alongside our curricular learning, we have lots of opportunities to take part in developing our Social Communication skills and our turn-taking abilities. We do a lot of activities around the preparation for adulthood with our pupils to ensure that they are the best prepared they can be for life after The Mendip School. 

This year Pink Class are starting their academic qualifications in English, Maths and Science. We have specialist teachers for different lessons and follow the National Curriculum. The pupils also have one Options session a week in which they can choose to either take part in Animal Care, Expressive Arts, Manufacturing, football or the Duke of Edinburgh Award. 

Every day, we have Class cafe, we pay for and make our own snacks, usually toast and fruit. We also watch Newsround every day and enjoy discussing the various topics in the news.
