Orchard Pathway Curriculum Themes
Learning opportunities are enhanced by a themed, immersive curriculum that enables students to engage with high quality texts and a wide range of resources. The Orchard Curriculum operates on a three year rolling programme of themes.
Each week Orchard Pathway gather for an assembly to celebrate their work from the week and all pupils are encouraged to bring along something that they have produced and to share it with the group. We have also developed community links to support our cultural capital including sessions with Charlton Athletic and Magpie Dance. Therapists regularly come to visit classes to support our range of needs including occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, CAMHS, and educational psychologists. This input helps us to thrive at school, home and in the community. Many of us love to swim and to bounce on the trampoline and all classes have time to engage with this – it helps us build not only our physical skills but our communication skills and relationships too. Lots of us need help with sensory integration and this, along with physical activities, is built in to our timetables to support us to learn.
