Help! SEN group of 6th-formers - engaging activities/ topics?

    Hi all!

    I will be teaching a group of SEN 6th formers this year (years 12, 13 & 14 - varied needs but the 'higher level' group).

    I will be teaching a variety of lessons including SEFL.

    I will soon need to do a transition day where we all meet each other but I have never taught pupils of this age before!!!!!

    Can anyone recommend any good activities/ work/ tasks we can do for the transition day - I have done the usual 'getting to know you' things many times in the past but I think they are going to need something 'cooler' as they are quite 'with-it' and I think the usual stuff I would do would be considered 'lame'.

    Don't get me wrong - I'm not aiming to be cool - I just want to ensure that I really engage them and like to start off on a good foot!!

    I will have mixed boys & girls (mainly boys) but I don't have much information yet about their interests!!

    Any help appreciated!!!

    Thank you!!! x

    I don't know about being cool so I can't really help you, but I'd be tempted to do something 'real world' and purposeful, so that they feel respected and grown up.

    A whole host of options here: jo.element42.org/educational-materials all free to download from various big organisations - the Amnesty, Oxfam or the HMD resources would be my suggestions.

    Kind regards
