Making a bear sandwich.

We looked at the ingredients we needed to make a bear sandwich. We needed bread, chocolate spread, banana and blueberries. We each got a slice of bread and used a knife to spread the chocolate spread on the bread. We then sliced the banana to create a nose and ears for the bear.  We then chose blueberries to add to make two eyes and the tip of his nose. The boys loved creating this and were able to spread with physical support from staff. They enjoyed seeing their final creation and some tried it at snack time.

Together Again in Oak

We are very happy to have almost the everyone within the Oak class back for their first full week!

We have jumped straight back into our usual routine and back on top of things with a very busy week filled with lots of hard work.

They have all been confident individuals in all the tasks that have been set.

In literacy we have completed lots of listening and comprehension tasks, along with working on our reading and forming sentences in a logical order.

This week in numeracy we have been recapping and checking our knowledge on our time and money work.


We love to be very active in the Oak class and we have enjoyed lots of sensory movement breaks to help us refocus between all our hard work tasks.  Here we have two very flexible young men taking part in our yoga session.  We do yoga every day before we have lunch.


This week as part of our Health and Well-being work and Rights Respecting School we have been thinking about talking about what makes a good friend.  Everyone confidently identified their friend then gave some great answers as to why they are their friend.

We have been working on our individual activities that have been set for us to help improve our fine motor skills and hand grip.

FAOL – ECO/Sustainable Development – Partnership for the Goals

Successful Learners           Responsible Citizens                                                          Confident Individuals         Effective Contributors

We chose photographs and created an Article 17 poster showing that children have a right to get information that is important to their health and well-being. We watched Newsround to get current information about Covid 19 and did activities relating to this issue and how to keep safe and happy.

The Stars are back!

The whole Stars class were delighted to be back together again this week, especially as it involved Red Nose Day. We did lots of activities including making faces, icing biscuits, creating superhero masks, playing promethean board games and doing a red volcano experiment. We even enjoyed a red nose and spoon relay race! We had great fun.

Hope you are all happy and well. 😊 We are in the middle of Fair Trade Fortnight, this is Science Week and Sunday is Mother’s Day. Phew! What a busy week! Find below a few activities you might choose to do, associated with this.

 Fair Trade Fortnight

When we buy goods with the Fair Trade logo on it we know that the producer has been paid a fair amount of money to produce it. This means they can afford to pay their bills, buy enough food, clothes and any needed medicines for their families and ensure they can educate their children. Look in your kitchen cupboards and see what Fair Trade items you can find. You might find the logo on sugar, chocolate, cocoa, tea, coffee, ice cream and bananas. How many can you find? You’ve maybe had Fair Trade roses in your house.

Listen to the Fair Trade Mark Song.

Fair Trade Mark Song

  Bananas are well known Fair Trade Goods. They are easy to chop as they are soft. How many pieces are you able to chop one banana in to?

  You could maybe have a wee competition with your family.

In the game below you can make a peanut butter, banana and honey sandwich. You can find Fair Trade varieties of peanut butter (provided it is safe for you to eat it) and honey too.

Cookie Monsters Foodie Truck

 Banana Loaf

3 very ripe bananas

3 large free range eggs

100g soft light brown sugar

150ml sunflower or vegetable oil

275g white self raising flour

1 tsp ground mixed spice

1 tsp baking powder

  1. Preheat oven to 180 deg C/160 deg C Fan/Gas no 4 and grease and line a 900g/2lb loaf tin

  2. Peel the bananas and mash. Tip into a large mixing bowl and add the eggs, sugar and oil. Whisk to combine.

  3. Add the flour, spice and baking powder and whisk together until thoroughly combined. Pour into prepared tin. Bake for 40 minutes, or until cake is well risen and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

  4. Cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack. Serve warm or cold in slices. Spread with butter if you like.

This Sunday is Mother’s Day but really it is a day to thank all those who help and look after us at home, not just mum’s. Help your mum, dad or carer around the house. Try doing the recycling, dusting, tidying up, hoovering, setting the table or washing the dishes. These are just a few ideas. You do not have to do them all! Just do your best to be a good helper.

 Amazing Bananas         

You will need:- bananas, lolly sticks, plastic knife, silicone paper and oven tray.

1.  Peel and cut bananas in half.

  1. Stick a lolly stick in to flat end of banana.

  2. Place the bananas on the tray with silicone paper and put into the freezer.

  3. Wait a few hours for the bananas to freeze.

  4. Take bananas out of freezer.

How did freezing effect the banana’s taste, texture and colour?

   If you want you can dip the lollies in chocolate or liquidise the frozen bananas to make healthy banana ‘ice cream’. Yum!

I hope you enjoy trying some of these activities.

Have Fun! Stay Safe!

Plan a picnic to have indoors as it will probably be too cold to have outside. You could lay a rug on the floor. Make your favourite sandwiches , some fairy cakes or simply enjoy your favourite crisps, fruit and juice. Why not send some photographs of your picnic.


Build a Den

Use rugs, old sheets, cushions off the couch, dining room table and chairs or clothes horse to build a den. These are only suggestions. Read a book inside your den. It’s fun when using a torch to read.

I hope you enjoy trying some of these activities.
