End of Term

Hello everybody.

I can’t believe it’s the end of term already! What a strange way to end this year. We have to say farewell to our two leavers and wish you all the best in the future. You will be missed! Keep your eyes peeled for some visitors this week! Everyone else I hope you enjoy the summer and I’ll see you at after the holidays in our new normal way of working. You should also look out out for visitors this week too!

Below are some ideas for over summer. You can pick and choose whatever you would like to do.

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.

Hello everybody!

Another week already! I hope you are all still keeping well. The weather for this week looks quite mixed. The home learning this week is a mixture of indoor and outdoor activities so you can dodge any potential rain showers! I have chosen two activities from Wilderness Outdoor Education. They have lots of good activities. You all know I like my food so there is another fire-pit recipe and some work around the human body. I would love to see pictures of your creations.

Here is this week’s learning. Home learning 8th June

Hello everybody,

I hope you enjoyed the lovely weather over the weekend. The Transition team enjoyed the weather in their gardens and there were a few BBQs. If we had been at school we would have taken part in Sports Day this week. Keep your eyes peeled for a whole school sports day video on the blog this week.

Below is the link to this week’s home learning if you would like some ideas for activities.

Virtual Residential

Hi everyone.

Sorry for the delay in this post, technical difficulties! Yesterday and today we should have been on our residential trip so I thought I’d make a few videos of the type of thing we would have done. I hope you enjoy them. Please do try them at home!

Hello everybody,

I hope you have had a nice ‘long weekend’.

This week we were supposed to be going on our residential trip, but we are healthy and happy at home in stead. The weather look better so this week’s learning is linked to being outdoors. There are video instructions below for different activities and I’ll be on the blog later this week with some activities that we would have done on our residential. Links below are from East Ayrshire’s Learning Outdoor Support Team (LOST).

Hello everybody!

The weather isn’t quite as nice this week is it? Never mind, the rain is needed to let plants grow (and it gives us a nice excuse to be indoors for a change!). The Transition team hope that you are all well and looking after each other.

It’s careers week this week so the task that I have suggested are all linked to different jobs. There are some suggestions for activities at home and some videos to watch that tell you about different jobs. I wonder what your dream job is? It can be anything you like. Why don’t you draw a picture of you doing your dream job and share it with us? My dream job would have to be Explorer. Imagine all the places you’d visit and the exciting things you’d see!

Hello everybody! A new week at home. A sunny morning but a cold one, you might need a jacket if you are out for your daily exercise today! I hope you all had a good week last week and enjoyed the video of the ducklings hatching.

My family and I have had lots of fun with the Seek app and have found interesting plants. Apple mint was a favourite.

Here are this week’s suggested activities.

Week 3

Keep your eye on the blog later in the week for a wee photographic quiz.
