Bedwas Bears are our way of visualising the four core purposes for our learners, they were linked to the essential skills. These underpin our curriculum so the pupils can see how the skills are transferable. There are four bears, one for each core purpose, the pupils worked on these to identify which skills they felt would be most needed for each core purpose. We decided the communication skills, listening and speaking, would cross all of the fore core purposes. We reward points for the skills on Class Dojo and give corresponding certificates in assemblies. We have icons on some of our display boards but in classrooms we have laminated placemats for the skills, all staff use these in lessons. We have shared the homezone hub with our parents to support them at home. In our floor books, pupils discuss the skills they have used in their activity and stick the relevant skill into the book.
