More about Stronsay Class!

We are a mixed ability Key stage 4 class (Year 10 and 11) 

 

  • We really enjoy spending time together and have lots of fun and laughs in our class. We have a really good mix of personalities and we are getting to know each other and work together well.
  • We are currently working together on the Key stage 4 topic which is The Victorians we are learning lots of interesting facts.
  •  Our independence is important to us in Stronsay so we are working hard to increase our skills by accessing community sessions, meal prep and snack making.
  • We are looking forward to the rest of the academic year and all the exciting opportunities and experiences to come.
