Responsible Citizens – A Visit from Holly McJingle

The Transition boys had a wonderful surprise this week when they got a visit from Holly McJingle. Holly McJingle is a helper elf and was on a mission from Santa Claus. The Transition class had written their letters to Santa and one of our boys had posted it for us.  Santa received them and had written back to our boys along with a wee gift. The boys were Responsible Citizens showing excellent behaviour and manners when Holly McJingle visited to deliver the letters and gift from Santa. The boys must remember to ring their bells at 6pm on Christmas Eve!


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.
