Day 5, and it was time to say goodbye to Arran and all the wonderful staff at the Arran Outdoor Centre. Before setting sail for home, the adventurers had one final stroll through Brodick and were very pleased to find the chocolate shop!!!!! We then boarded the ferry and waved a final farewell to Arran. Time now to recharge the batteries before back to school on Monday.
After dinner the adventurers enjoyed a bus journey to Whiting Bay where we threw stones into the sea, walked along the beach and also saw a rainbow. We then headed up to Brodick for a stroll along the promenade and watched the ferry dock in the bay. Busy day ahead tomorrow so time for some well earned rest.
Today we climbed the wall , this afternoon we went sailing to the Holy Isle where we enjoyed our lunch. Everybody had a shot a turn at driving the boat. Went back to the centre to relax before dinner.
Boys in Skye Class enjoying Group Time.
Skye class made Maracas from used plastic bottles. This tied in with their Lion King Topic. They then played along to the music.
As part of waste week Skye class started a long term project for the Sensory Garden. We have already begun collecting bottle tops in the school, but as you can see from the photographs we will need loads more, apart from green 🙂
During ‘ Waste Week’ Arran class have been up cycling using a variety of materials. Darren made a collage of a bus using coloured paper and plastic bottle tops. During art at Irvine Royal Academy Gary, Charlie and Joe are in the process of making pictures of the country side with bits of wool and scraps of fleece.
We celebrated ‘World Book Day’ by each pupil choosing their favourite book from Bourtreehill library. We brought them back to school and took time to explore and listen to our own book and friends books.
