Welcome back to school. 

Anaconda Class is an Autism Specific Class for Key Stage 2 children. There are four members of staff, Nicola Hodgson the teacher, Shelby Whitelock, Jo Lightowler and Gemma Thomas.  

The children follow the National Curriculum appropriate to their individual needs. We follow the TEACCH approach (University of North Carolina) at regular intervals throughout the day. 

The children have regular swimming lessons at Mill House Swimming Pool, Rebound and PE lessons. This term the children will participate in music lessons provided by Tees Valley Music Service. 

September 2017: We had a visit from H'angus the Monkey to celebrate our new school bus. The children loved him!

We visited Blackhall Rocks to explore the rocks and caves for our Science topic work.

Farm to Fork Trail at Tesco Extra Hartlepool 16th October 2017. The children visited Tesco and learned about the different areas of the store and where our food comes from. The children made their own bread and tasted different breads, cheeses and fruits.
