Tuesday the 16th of June

Hello everyone,

It’s the second last week of term! How did that happen? It has definitely been a different term at Willowbank. This week we would have had two big activities. The prom was meant to be this Friday and we would have had a POLO (Power Off Learning Outside) day as well.  The activities for this week are a mix of the two events. I hope that you have lots of fun doing them.

Here are this week’s activities Home learning 16th June

There will be a virtual prom at the end of the week. I have listed some of the dances that we will be doing but feel free to make your own playlist and your own amazing dance moves. Send pictures of you at your virtual prom.

Stay healthy and be kind to each other.

Mr Nicoll

Orange and Blue🧡💙

Pine Class we have been missing you all so much that we had to take drastic measures and make a little version of you all!!

Well we are at our last two colours of the Rainbow!!!!

So we are going to select some different activities involving these two colours.

It is also POLO week – Power of Learning Outdoors – so we are going to include some activities you can do outside too!!


 Cookery 🥗

I think blue is even more difficult than purple so we will leave the cookery to orange.


So what about some carrot soup?

  • Can help wash the carrots and other vegetables?
  • Can you help peel?
  • What about chopping and grating?
  • Can you hear the soup bubbling away?
  • Now it is cooked – what does it taste like – is it yummy?

Below are links to a few different recipes you may like to look at OR you may have one of your own REMEMBER to send in photos and your recommendations.📷

Animals and Nature 🐝

You may have noticed quite a lot of bees just now – bees  are an important part of our world, they help to pollinate plants that create the food that we eat.


They is a link below from the BBC which shows you a wee video explaining the importance of the bees.

And below is another link giving you ways you can help the bees – see if there something you can do in your garden? Another outdoor learning activity for POLO week.

Arts and Crafts 🎨

We have use potatoes to do stamping and printing in the Pine Room and all enjoyed it – so this is a nice easy craft for you to do at home all you need is a potato, a knife, some paint and paper.

Some other POLO Outside Activities:

  • Shadow Drawing – we do this quite often in the Pine Class and all enjoy it, you do need a sunny day ( let’s be hopeful!!!!)and some chalk, but you can draw around anything that that creates a shadow – your dog, a plant pot, a garden gnome, a barbie doll, a box of cereal. Leave the object in the same position and later in the day draw round the shadow again –  is it different??

  • Making a Garden Picture – using things you can pick from your garden, then create a lovely picture, like this one from The Craft Train 

Music and Dancing 🎶🕺

I have linked a fast song and a slower song – whatever you feel like!

HELLO Pine Class – How are you all? Did you have a good week? Did anyone make Blueberry Muffins from last week’s blog? I love Blueberry Muffins so if you do please send me some!!! Heather doesn’t bake!!! I have been watching some ‘Reality TV’ while Heather has been at work – Jardine and Boyle send me recommendations each week –  Heather would prefer I watch something more educational! We have been tidying up her wardrope, I have great fun hiding in her piles of clothes and then surprising her!!! We had a wee cup of tea before she went off to Night Duty last night BUT we ran out of biscuits!!! Heather says if I moan once more about the lack of Custard Creams I am getting sent by Royal Mail back to Willowbank!!!

Have a great week Pine Class

Prom Week!

Well, everyone, it is the week of Prom. In school, we would have been taking part in activities related to Prom.  So here are some you can try at home.


Can you make some cupcakes for Prom day to enjoy as a treat.  Literacy skills will also be used in this task.  Listen to the adult reading the recipe and then follow the instructions.  Below is the recipe then you can choose to decorate them any way you like.

  cupcake recipe 1

Art –

We would have made some tissue paper flowers in school and gave it to someone special.  Try and make some of these beautiful flowers at home.  Then choose who you give it to, you could go your daily walk and drop it at their doorstep.  This will make someone’s day be very special. Click here to find a tutorial on how to make the flowers.

Also, we will find out who has been made Willowbank Prom King and Queen 2020. Can you make a crown at home and model it around the house.  It can be made from paper of natural items you find out on your walk.  

Literacy –

Draw a large circle on a piece of paper, think of everyone that has been in your class this year.  Can you write all their names inside this circle, don’t forget the adults too! Can you sign their names, by fingerspelling their first initial of their name.  If you need some help click on the link below to find out how to sign the letters.


Can you get an adult to draw an outline of a person and, think about what you would wear to prom. Can you design an outfit, or from your wardrobe pick out the best clothes that you think would be suitable to wear to prom.

Music –

Friday is Prom day, however, if you want to practice some of the dances then below is some from the playlist;

Hokey Cokey


Have fun and if you complete any of the activities please email them and we will share on the school blog.




Good Morning everyone!

Well, it is the official countdown to Prom 2020 for our four leavers! Our Willowbank Prom would have taken place on Friday 19th June, we do not want this occasion to pass without it being celebrated, as a lot of hard work had been put into the preparations for Prom.

So Willowbank is providing a virtual prom for every pupil and their family.  We would love for as many people to be involved as possible, make your ‘Prom At Home’ special.  Get dressed up, make your favourite snack, and then on Friday 19th June click on the Prom link which will be found on our blog and this will take you to our Willowbank Prom Playlist.
