We are Explorers’ a Post-16 class based at Mary Rose School.

We work extremely hard in our enterprise groups Monday to Wednesday and come together as a tutor group on Thursdays and Fridays to learn life skills and explorer our local community.

December 2021

This term Explorers have been out and about in the community, working on communication targets, taking part in our enterprises and working on our independence wherever possible.

We focussed on road safety when out in the community and being able to communicate what we needed using different methods of communication. 

We have started rehearsing for Dance Live which will take place in February and it is a big favourite for most of our students.

Explorers have excelled in the pool and we shared this time with our peers in other 6th form classes.

We have seen our students start building beautiful new relationships whilst taking part in shared activities

We are all now ready for Christmas and we hope everyone will have a wonderful time with friends and family. 

Merry Christmas from Explorers.

January 2022

Happy New Year to all our Explorers and their families. 

We hope that everyone had a wonderful festive time with family and friends.  Spring term kicks off with a flurry of activity as we continue to prepare for Dance Live which will be taking place on the 10 of February 2022 in the Guildhall in Portsmouth.  

Pupils are learning steps, dancing with support and showing enjoyment.  We continue to work on our communication skill and different methods of communication within school and when we are out in the community visiting shops, taking part in healthy activities or other leisure activities. 

We are exploring different sensory activities related to Spring and our various learning areas and encouraging our students to participate in whichever way they feel comfortable.  Soon we will start planning for Mother’s day and then Easter.  There are many lovely activities in the pipeline and we hope to take all of you on a little journey of our learning later in the year.
