FAOL – Transition CRM Rose

The boys in the Transition class have been learning about the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh (7 June 1868 – 10 December 1928).

He was a Scottish architect, designer, watercolourist and sculptor and extremely influential within the  Arts and Crafts movement and Art Nouveau in the United Kingdom.

We discussed his famous works and buildings and also the tragic fires which destroyed part of the Glasgow School of Art building where Mrs Macdonald studied.

I’m sure you will agree that these beautiful Mackintosh inspired roses are fabulous! Well done boys, successful learners.

IDL Music – percussion sounds

Successful Learners  Confident Individuals    Effective Contributors

The Snowdrops have been playing with the Gruffalo Chorus Game on the SMARTboard and have listened to different sounds made by all the Gruffalo story characters.  We decided to make our own sounds for each of the animals.  Everyone enjoyed exploring percussion instruments and the different sounds they could make.  The Snowdrops took turns to choose an animal from the story and then decide which percussion instrument would make their sound.  We made lots of noise, playing our instruments when an animal picture was held up.

IDL HWB – Baking Gruffalo Crumble

Effective Contributors/Successful Learners

We have heard about Gruffalo crumble from our Scottish theme story and decided to bake some for ourselves.   Everyone contributed really well in lots of different ways – touching, tasting, smelling and exploring different crumble ingredients.  We used lots of self-help skills, cutting, mixing and pouring in different ways.  It was very tasty!

Sungazer’s morning group

Monday morning started with our morning group where we write our day, date and month as well as come together to sing and dance in our seasons song. The boys enjoy using props to dress up as each season and can identify the current season which is winter. After morning group Reece sets up our snack shop and invites his friends one by one to select the correct coins to pay for their snacks.



FAOL: ECO / Sustainable Development – Work Experience

*Responsible Citizens*   *Confident Individuals*  *Successful Learners*

The Moonbeams have been busy preparing for and making Pizza this week. They created posters to show what flavours of Pizza they were selling and made a shopping list of ingredients to take to Tesco. On Friday afternoon the children very responsibility made the Pizza and then visited the Comets class to sell for 10p per slice. The children used their maths skills to recognise the coins and numbers on the till. They were very happy as we had some left over to take home to their families.


Visit to the Willowbank Café

Today the Sunflowers were invited to the Willowbank café run by some of our secondary pupils as part of their enterprise groups. The children were confident individuals going to the lunch hall at snack time which is very different to our usual routine. They were able to look at the menu and choose what they would like to eat and drink. They all sat really well and waited for their food. We also sang good luck to Miss Campbell who is leaving the Sunflowers today. Good Luck Miss Campbell in your new adventure. The pupils working at the café also did a lovely sing and sign to the music that was playing. It was really good. I think the Sunflowers will be super excited when we get an invitation to go again.  🙂

Enterprise Work

Our Prom 2020 committee was hard at work this morning getting prepared for our special event in June.  Ethan and Hayden were creating personalised placemats, Milly and Oliver were helping to create a shopping list of decorations and the girls were busy making some of our own decorations!

We were effective contributors as we all took on special roles and responsibilities.


Be the best you can be!
