Wild Cherry Class
Wild Cherry are a mix of primary and one secondary student, we are a learning to learn class with lots of elements of a ready to learn curriculum. We focus on showing tolerance, patience and understanding of our peers, adults and school environment. We are highly motivated by earning ticks which turn into stars which we collect throughout the day, each star then counts towards 5 minutes of reward time at the end of the day. This system works really positively in the classroom and encourages positive behaviour throughout.
I am Gemma Harder, the Wild Cherry class teacher and I have worked at The Mendip School for over a year now. I have taught mainly in SEN schools with a placement in mainstream during my training year. I enjoy sewing in my own time, spending time with friends and family and being outdoors in nature.
