On Thursday, 17th November 2016, Year 11 went to the NEC to The Skills Show. Pupils had the opportunity to participate in a variety of interactive workshops based around careers and life after school.
On Thursday 24th November 2016 Year 11 went to The Mac Cinema to see the film, ‘Goosebumps’ (rating PG) as part of National Film Week. After the film we listened to talk about how they decide age rating for films.
As their termly reward, Year 11 had a meal at the Bradford Arms Toby Carvery on Monday, 12th December 2016. We had a two course meal and a bottomless drink!
Woodlands Campus Visit January 2017
Students are deciding where to continue their learning after Year 11, Woodlands is very close to Forest Oak School so is ideal for our Students.
Year 11 went to Woodlands Campus to look at what courses they have on offer!
They looked at the classrooms that are based around vocational learning, some of our students were interested in the Construction courses and Motor Vehicle.
We were also fortunate enough to have Adam Gooch from SMBC Travel Training Team to walk with us. Adam was able to give the students tips and advice on walking to and from College safely.
Jordan, Junior and Brad in Year 11 have all enrolled at Erdington Skills Centre!
They attend one day a week throughout Year 11 and will complete a City and Guilds Award Level 1 in Construction.
The students have settled in to their placement really well and are enjoying the practical sessions in Bricklaying and Plumbing.
Year 11 students have enjoyed attending the Secret Garden project.
They attend one day a week and they get to choose from subjects that can help with confidence, self-awareness and independent living skills.
They get to choose from horticulture and animal care, they also get to make their own lunches using vegetables grown on the project.
The secret garden is an all-weather and all ability provision and enables the students to experience both individual and group learning in a controlled yet free learning environment.
