Monday the 1st of June

Hello everybody,

I hope you enjoyed the lovely weather over the weekend. The Transition team enjoyed the weather in their gardens and there were a few BBQs. If we had been at school we would have taken part in Sports Day this week. Keep your eyes peeled for a whole school sports day video on the blog this week.

Below is the link to this week’s home learning if you would like some ideas for activities.

Hello everybody! A new week at home. A sunny morning but a cold one, you might need a jacket if you are out for your daily exercise today! I hope you all had a good week last week and enjoyed the video of the ducklings hatching.

My family and I have had lots of fun with the Seek app and have found interesting plants. Apple mint was a favourite.

Here are this week’s suggested activities.

Week 3

Keep your eye on the blog later in the week for a wee photographic quiz.

Stay healthy and be kind to each other.

Happy Star Wars day everyone! I hope that you are all well and still enjoying this good weather. The Transition team will have an exciting video to show you this week. Keep your eyes on the blog! A clue to the subject is that we were meant to look after them in school but Mrs Ramage has her own at home. Answers on a postcard!

A nice free app that I found last week was ‘Seek by iNaturalist’ This New App Will Help You Identify the Plants and Animals You See ...

It can identify things you find in your garden or on your daily exercise. Just point your camera at it. It is very effective for wild flowers. I think it’s really good. Let me know if you find anything exciting or rare.

Below is this weeks suggested activities. Enjoy your short week (holiday Friday!) and let me know how you get on.

Week 2

Stay healthy and be kind to each other.

Burns’ Supper – Practical Hospitality

The Transition boys put in a great shift this Friday when they set up for and served the Burns’ Supper. Patrick performed ‘My Heart’s in the Highlands’ to get things started. The boys were Confident Individuals and served all the food carefully and with great manners. As School Captain Ethan sat at the top table and made the Transition Class very proud. Well done all!


Hospitality Training

The Transition boys were working hard on their hospitality skills this week. The boys were Effective Contributors when setting tables and ironing items. As part of their SQA course the boys have to prove that they can follow instructions, they practiced this by following table settings to check our Burn’s supper layout was correct. The boys also have to carry out tasks that would be included in the hospitality industry. The boys proved they can handle an iron safely before ironing items with the hot iron. Maximum effort by all!
