The last 2 weeks have been full of energetic fun between the Hydrotherapy pool and our Rebound Therapy sessions on the trampoline. Our new P1s have been showing us their delight and fully participating in our activities. We have worked hard to ensure our fabulous newbies have had the best start with varied experiences. Our photos show exactly how they responded. Enjoy 🙂
We have had a fantastic time exploring different STEAM activities. We have learned lots of new skills and everyone has been full of smiles during the fun!!
We may not have been at school much during April but we still managed to pack lots of fun in and keep ourselves very busy. See a separate blog for STEAM Week.
Primary A have seen many benefits from Rebound sessions this year. From health benefits to communication development. Our wee stars are incredible and its so wonderful to see them choosing favourites ❤
We have had lots of smiles and laughter outside in the sunshine today creating bubbles. The boys took great delight in splashing us all then laughing when we squealed!
Primary A, B and C have been busy carrying out our annual Spring clean. We all came together to learn about recycling and sorting our rubbish into different bins. Linsey lead a great session with some songs about litter picking and recycling. We then all went outside to collect any litter we could find and sort it into the correct bins. Well done everyone and thank you Linsey for organising it all.
On Friday 16th March we had a dress up or dress down day in aid of Sport Relief. The whole school came together to get their Strictly Come Disco on partied the afternoon away. We decorated with disco balls that the pupils made and had sensory lights. Everyone had a great time and we raised £66.00 for Sport Relief.
Well done everyone!!!

Happy New Year everyone. We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and enjoyed the holidays.
Primary A had a very productive first day back. We explored many different sensory resources but our favourite was exploring light and sound in the Sensory Studio.
So far this term Primary A have been very busy. Nativity rehearsals have us all prepared for our upcoming perormances and we hope you are as excited as we are to see it.
As a class we decided we would like to donate one of our sensory elves. We felt that the Children’s Ward at Crosshouse is somewhere that many of our pupils experience and we wanted to give back. Chloe helped to package up our Elf and post it off to them. We hope they got a lovely surprise and that their Elf isn’t up to too much mischief 😁
On Monday the 4th of December we visited Ardrossan Library. Lara read us a story all about Ice Cream and then we did some arts and crafts, making an ice cream picture. Our pictures are on display in the library. Lara very kindly presented each of us with a Book Bag to take home.
We LOVED the pantomime. We had great fun dancing and singing along with the music and watching lots of different characters. Harry was particularly excited when a Minion made an appearance 🙂
Debbie brought her puppy Ozy into school to see us and we all spent some time clapping him and watching him explore our classroom. Ozy was very calm and sat for us to touch him and feel his soft fur. He even did some tricks for us 🐶
Shaun from Sensory Guru helped us to experience and explore a Magic Carpet when he brought it to our Christmas Fayre. It was AMAZING and we are very excited to be able to donate towards this from our Elf fundraising. We all spent time exploring the different apps and activating the carpet through movement. We all tried different activities and were able to show our favourites through our facial expressions and vocalisations.
On Monday 11th December we joined Primary B to attend the Variety Club Party at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Glasgow. There was music, dancing, puppeteers, party poppers and even Santa came to see us. We had a wonderful time and want to thank everyone at the Variety Club for inviting us and for the gifts they gave.
There has been lots of sensory play in between Nativity rehearsals and all of our other activities but making snow and having snowball fights was our favourite. We made the snow together then had great fun getting messy. Lots of work on gross and fine motor (as well as working our tummy muscles through laughing 😂).
Mr Bubbles has been keeping us busy and we have to find him every morning. He loves to hide and surprise us. We have found him hiding in Harry’s chair, on top of the Christmas Tree and even sliding down a tinsel zip slide. We are using our problem solving skills to find him and see what mischief he has managed.
Today was our Christmas Party and we all wore lovely Christmassy outfits. We danced, played some games and waited very well for Santa to call our names. He even had gifts for us. We are all very lucky.
We hope you can join us for our Nativity Performance and if anyone has photos of their Elves having fun we would love to have them so we can share them all with you.
