Official Opening of the School Greenhouse

We finally did it! The up-cycled greenhouse has been built. The roof has been put on and it is ready for use. The Transition class were Responsible Citizens throughout the whole build and have created a whole school resource. We had a special guest to officially open the Greenhouse. The Chair of the Parent Council cut the ribbon and declared the greenhouse ready for use!

50 things outdoors – Windswept

We explored  wind whilst being outdoors. We experienced the wind on our face and how when it is strong it may blow objects around outside. We made our own wind sock to explore what would happen on a windy day. We took our wind socks outside and watched as the wind blew the tissue paper streamers  at the bottom.  The wind can sometimes blow rubbish into our outdoor area and we are responsible citizens and will tidy up.

Confident Individuals – Power Off Learn Outdoors

Friday was POLO day and the Transition class threw themselves right into it. They were Confident Individuals taking part in a variety of activities. In the morning there was water play which involved throwing water balloons and spraying water onto a target. The target quite quickly became each other and the boys took part in a fun water fight. A water fight was one of their 50 Things to do in the Outdoors outcomes and each boy completed it well! Mr Nicoll was a major target throughout the battle!! The boys were also Responsible Citizens by ensuring that the area was tidy after all the water balloons had been thrown. The afternoon was much more calm when we turned our hand to Croquet and practiced hitting the ball towards the target. It turned out to be harder than we thought to hit the ball with a wooden mallet.

Responsible Citizens – First Aid

The Transition class were Responsible Citizens during their Health and Wellbeing lesson this week. They were learning about how to deal with a large bleeding cut. The boys listened and watched closely. They were able to demonstrate what to do when clumsy Mr Nicoll repeatedly cut himself. There was blood everywhere……….it may have been tomato sauce! Well done boys, you all demonstrated your skills very confidently. One boy took it further and acted the casualty at the door when it was outdoor time.


Responsible Citizens – Sunflower Meadow

The sun may have disappeared but the Transition class were full of cheer when they collected in the school sunflower seedlings to plant into the sunflower meadow. They were Responsible Citizens bringing the whole school together by germinating sunflower seeds before making a joint meadow. Hopefully they will flower before we go on summer holiday.
