Successful Learners – Literacy Scottish Poetry

The Transition boys were Successful Learners listening to Scottish poetry signing some of the Scottish words and putting the poem in order. Some of the boys read the poem to the rest of the class. Some boys translated the Scottish words so that everyone could understand. Whilst looking at Scottish words, we took the time to read the 12 Scottish Days of Christmas and identify different Scottish items and animals.

Successful learners during Science week

This week has been full of lots of different science activities and experiments. On Tuesday we had a day of science. The people from the dark sky observatory came with an inflatable planetarium. We all went inside to view the stars and the planets. We experience some science activities with students from Grange. We got to explore robots and made our own circuits with the ladies from Dumfries House. We also enjoyed exploring the stomp rockets.

We also conducted some science experiments in the classroom. We all really enjoy water play to we investigated floating and sinking. The children were confident individuals in placing the items in the water and then had some capacity fun filling and emptying different containers.

Pancake Day

Today is Pancake Day we had pancakes for snack and really enjoyed playing in the afternoon with our pancake tuff tray. We mixed all the ingredients in the bowl, matched labels with the images of the items needed and flipped pictures of pancakes. All the children had great fun. They were all confident individuals with their flipping skills and everyone used lots of words when touching the ingredients.
