Responsible Citizens – MOVE day

What a busy day the Transition class had for MOVE day! We took part in lots of MOVE challenges in class in the morning. The class followed actions songs, played dice game where each number matched to an animal and made a MOVE poster. Just before lunch we took part in the secondary playground activities and in the afternoon we worked through different space themed MOVE activities. It was a great day where every pupil gave a lot of effort. The class were all Responsible Citizens.

Follow the leader!!!!

Platinum Jubilee in the Stars Class

*Successful Learners        *Effective Contributors

We participated in lots of activities to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. We wore a crown and robe, did a scavenger hunt, read a funny story called ‘The Queen’s Knickers’ and made crown biscuits at HE. Wearing golden crowns we had a lovely picnic in the garden and played parachute games with the Moonbeams. The Corgi cupcakes were really good too at our jubilee lunch on Tuesday.

Welcome Back Pine Class…ready for Earth Day?

Working in our SQA Communication Unit, we were successful learners picking our favourite Encanto characters, and putting them into the correct families. We watched a little more of the film and enjoyed some more of the songs.

Some of us got to enjoy a shot on the bike around the playground – thank you Mr Cameron.

We used sensory play for a few reasons different reasons this week,  for hand exercises – working on gripping and stretching. Working on our fine motor skills using the tongs to pick up different shaped objects. We used all the different objects to add up and count down for numeracy.

The weather has been lovely and we went for a couple walk to the Kay Park, we enjoyed watching the ducks and swans in the pond.

Earth Day is an annual event on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection, it was first held on April 22, 1970, it now includes a wide range of events coordinated globally by EarthDay.org including 1 billion people in more than 193 countries. The official theme for 2022 is Invest In Our Planet. We have been responsible citizens turning of the lights and all the equipment when we weren’t needing them. We watched some interested videos, listened to some catchy songs and made some cool artwork .

Our ECO rep says remember and turn off when not in use!!!

Stars Easter Activities

*Successful Learners                *Responsible Citizens                                        *Confident Individuals              *Effective Contributors

We did some lovely Easter themed activities this week. We created an Easter card, had a shapes treasure hunt and handled lots of different animals at the ‘Petting Zoo’. We had good fun following clues to find the Easter bunny and were rewarded by a chocolate egg from him. At science we did a ‘Humpty Dumpty’ experiment where we explored different ways to save an egg from breaking when dropped from a height. This was good fun. We joined other classes from the upper primary for an outdoor disco where we played games as well as danced. A good week has been had by all.
