On 6th February we went along to the Westburn Centre to learn how to play table tennis and tennis.
Thanks to the wonderful coaches the boys had a lovely time and all improved their hand eye coordination trying to hit the ball!! The improvement over the session was amazing to see!!!
Next sport we’re going to try is curling on 23rd March- we are all excited about this and have been watching clips from the Winter Olympics to see how its done.

Practicing throwing and catching the tennis ball.
Bouncing the table tennis ball on the bat takes lots of concentration.
Today we celebrated Burns day in the Link Room. We had a mini Burns Supper at snack time and most of the boys enjoyed haggis, neeps and tatties followed by shortbread, washed down by Irn Bru.
We watched a short story about the life of Burns, listened to bagpipe music and rounded off the celebration with Auld Lang Syne.
