Welcome to Nelson class.
The form tutor is Mr Xavier. The Teaching Assistant is Mrs Scoble.
Mr Xavier also teaches Nelson for PSHCE and a tutorial period.
Along with the core subjects of English, Maths and Science, Nelson students study a variety of subjects such as Art, PE, Computing, Performing Arts and all take part in PE enrichment on Friday afternoons.
PE enrichment allows students choose from a selection of offsite activities that do not always appear in traditional PE lessons, such as Football and Swimming, as well as onsite activities such as Fitness and Boccia.
Each week of terms 3 and 4, we are working our way through each letter and working on a topic based around that word. Week one is Personal, then Social, Health and finally Citizenship. Every four weeks, the process is repeated, using a different topic from each word.
Examples of topics we will be covering are:
Personal- Roles and responsibilities
Social- How relationships affect our lives
Health- Health risks
Citizenship- Citizenship in the UK
Discuss what their favourite topic in PSHCE is and what they have learned.
Ask your child what lunchtime clubs are on offer at Meadowfield, which ones they could attend and how that could help widen their social circle.
Ask them what affect the peer mentoring system has had at lunchtimes?
Discuss with your child any UK laws they have learned about at school?
