Term 1 in Duntarvie

WOW what a busy start to term 1 in Duntarvie we can’t believe it will be the October break next week!

We have been exploring garden maintenance this term and keeping Duntarvie garden clean and tidy through weeding, cutting the grass and leaf blowing.  We prepared the new kitchen garden area by upcycling some old tyres and compost from last year’s planting. We have already planted the seeds in the warmth of indoors and hope by the time Spring arrives we will have some lovey (hardy) herbs to plant outside.

To support our independence, develop our life skills and explore sensory development we have been completing class jobs including washing the windows, cleaning and putting away the dishes and sorting the laundry. Many of us have loved the new light weight hoover that we use to keep our class nice and tidy and it has even ventured round the school to ensure everyone is keeping their rooms nice and tidy!

A favourite class activity this term has been the sensory story of Boris the Bee – he has been a bit naughty by sneaking into the picnic basket and giving everyone a nasty sting!

It has been great to have new opportunities through our individual SQA work. This is the cooking group making all their health goodies to go home to parents and carers.  We are hoping to get out and about in the community more through further ASDAN and SQA work alongside starting our Duke of Edinburgh Awards.

Hope you all have a lovely October week – Duntavie.
