Kingley Class

Class Teacher: Greg Tognarelli

Welcome to Kingley Class one of our Key Stage 4 classes here at Littlegreen Academy.

Autumn Term 2023

Kingley Class have had a wonderful start to KS4.

We welcomed William into the class, and he has settled in really well thanks to the kindness of his peers.

The pupils have embraced their timetable, which sees them at Littlegreen for three days a week and at Chichester College for two days a week.  

All of the pupils love their time at college.  On a Tuesday they take part in their Technical Skills Day (Construction, Sport and Leisure, and Catering).

On Wednesday’s pupils are based at the Chichester College Hub, they go swimming at Westgate Leisure Centre as well as taking the opportunity to visit places such as Chichester Cathedral, The Bishop's Gardens, Chichester Canal Basin and Priory Park, as part of their ASDAN qualification.

In English, we have completed a topic based on the book ‘War Horse’ by Michael Morpurgo and have just started studying ‘Northern Lights’ by Phillip Pullman.

In Maths, we spent the first half term studying Algebraic thinking and have now moved on to place value and proportion.

As part of our Action Teams discussions, we decided to hold a half termly Burrito Club. This involved Mr Tognarelli (Head Chef) teaching the class how to create the perfect vegetarian burrito. We have also set up our own breakfast club at college, where Head Chef Adam provides us with Tea and Toast every Wednesday morning.

 

Spring Term 2024

Kingley class are really enjoying splitting their week between Littlegreen school and Chichester College. The pupils continue to thrive at college, and their Technical Skills Days are providing them with experiences in construction, animal care, sport and leisure and catering. 

As part of their Personal Social Effectiveness ASDAN qualification, the pupils have nearly completed the first of their three modules – Health and Wellbeing. The final part of the module is all about improving your own fitness and the pupils are currently keeping a fitness diary, logging a wide variety of exercises over a four-week period. These include swimming, hiking, assault courses, hill sprints and running. They are all working extremely hard at this and are keen to measure how much their fitness has improved.

On Thursday 8th February, Kingley are hosting a Book Fair in the school. We are expected to take delivery of a small library of books, set these out in our classroom, invite the rest of the classes in to buy books, take the money and then tidy up afterwards. This will provide Kingley pupils with valuable work experience and maybe even a little reward afterwards.

Kingley Spring Term 2024

 

Summer Term 2024

The pupils of Kingley class continue to enjoy their days at both the Littlegreen school site and at Chichester and Brinsbury Colleges.

In Maths, we are currently looking at constructing, measuring, and using geometric notation. This involves understanding angles, classifying a variety of shapes, and making accurate drawings.

In English, we have just started our new topic where we are looking at tourism through the eyes of a modern tourist and exploring the history of tourism.

We are close to completing the second unit in our ASDAN Personal Social Effectiveness qualification. This has been based on independent living and we have looked at reading metres, changing fuses, housing options, bicycle maintenance, bank accounts, debit and credit cards and creating menus. This qualification takes two years to complete, and we hope to finish it in about twelve months’ time.

We continue to take advantage of the outdoors at both college and school. Everyone is enjoying their PE times at college, which currently involves football, tennis, basketball, and swimming.  At school the local trails and woodlands have eventually dried out and we are hoping to do more hiking in the coming weeks. 

Indeed, some of Kingley class have set themselves the challenge of completing the whole of the Emsworth to Littlegreen sponsored walk which takes place on Thursday 9th May!
