Glendevon had a fantastic time on our sponsored walk this week and we all smashed our individual challenges. Alex captured lots of photos’ for us to look at when we came back and Liam collected lots of interesting things he found along they way for us to explore back in class. We were kept motivated by Mollie keeping the music playing and Fletcher led the way! Stanley was on the lookout for all the Beatlie signs and used them as a target for his Nerf gun, he even managed to shoot Carol when we got back to school!! We got back to school a little wet and exhausted but it was worth it for the amazing amount of money we have raised for a fantastic charity. Thank you so much to everyone who donated.
We had a fantastic morning enjoying the fresh air, taking in the sights and having fun as we made our way round the local environment on our sponsored walk!
Well done everyone!
We had a very busy and fun first term from August to October.

All the young people of Duntarvie class had lots of fun completing their individual challenges on our walk yesterday for Streetwork. We had budding photographers using switch accessible cameras and I pads, noise detectives and singers too. We all had a great time and so far we (as a school) have raised £600 but remember it isn’t to late to donate – just follow the link – https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/beatlie-school

Can you believe that it is time for a holiday again! It has been a very quick term and extremely busy. We are not complaining though and have been so happy to be in work and supporting the children here in school.
As you know we have been enjoying the topic of ‘Storyland’ this term and have had the opportunity to listen and explore the stories: Poo in the Zoo, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, The Tiger Who Came to Tea, Elmer and There’s a Dragon in my Book. It is hard to say but I think our favourite has been ‘There’s a Dragon in my Book’.
We are also enjoying getting outside for lots of different activities making the most of getting some fresh air before it gets too miserable over the winter months. We go for a walk/cycle every couple of days and go out to the playground every day as well as gardening once a week and some outdoor learning when Catherine is in. Catherine has given everyone lots of different sensory experiences looking and using natural resources from the local environment to make perfume from flowers and also some baking with rhubarb from the garden and apples picked from a tree from a very kind neighbour.
Although we are not getting to move around the school as much as we would like we are still managing to hold a virtual assembly with Duntarvie every week and the children love seeing their friends on screen and participate in Fischy Music. Gordon and Aisling are also providing music activities weekly and this is a favourite of everybody in the class especially when we get to play some instruments.
It was fantastic to talk with some of you for our consultations it is just unfortunate we cannot meet in person at the moment but hopefully the day will come before the end of the school session! Fingers crossed you are all able to enjoy a holiday with some freedom and recharge the batteries for Term 2. Maybe get in some walking ready for our sponsored walk!
