Parental Engagement

As part of the School Improvement Plan a group of teaching staff are looking at improving parental engagement with the school.

There is a survey that we would like all parents to complete to enable us to move this forward.

Crocus Planting

Today- 8th November 2017 the boys from the Link Room were involved in planting thousands of crocus bulbs in the grass area in front of the school and in the Link Room garden.

We will have to be patient and hopefully come March there will be a sea of purple crocuses for us to look at.

Term 2

Term 2 has started with lots of excitement.

On Tuesday Mrs Smith decorated the Link Room and we had a Halloween Party during the morning.

A great time was had by us all drinking witches blood (blackcurrant juice) and eating a variety of Halloween treats.

Also this week we have been learning about Guy Fawkes and have created some colourful pictures.

Ice Skating

We were very lucky to be invited to ice skating at The Lynx Ice Arena on Monday 2nd October 2017.

All of the boys enjoyed the experience and were supported by both staff and parents on the ice. Several brave boys managed to skate on their own.

Last Day of term

To finish off the school year we had a social lunch in the Link Room. The boys enjoyed pizza, chicken dippers and chips followed by ice cream all washed down with Fizz (Shloer) .

have a safe and happy holiday – See you on 22nd August.

Getting creative with clay

Following on from our study of caterpillars and butterflies the boys got creative making model caterpillars and butterflies with clay. Once dried the models were painted and are now ready to go home

Kids Out 2017

The boys from the Link Room enjoyed a wonderful day out at Craibstone Estate courtesy of The Rotary Club. Lots of activities to enjoy and new challenges to test our skills. A great time was had by all- and the weather was kind to us.

We enjoyed meeting The Sheep

Thomas had a caterpillar on his face

Mac enjoyed the pony ride

Dylan on his pony

Liam and Hayden got to tough the lizard

Watch out- this one is coming home with Dylan!!

We all enjoyed a trip on the train

The climbing wall was a challenge of co-ordination and overcoming a fear of heights

 

Butterflies

After watching our caterpillars get bigger by the day and studying the chrysalis, the boys were very excited to come in last week and find we had Butterflies!!

After feeding them and allowing them a few days to strengthen their wings we set them free.

 

Life Cycle

The boys in the link room are finding out about the life cycle of the butterfly. We have been watching our caterpillars grow rapidly and are now waiting patiently for the butterflies to appear. We will keep you posted!!

The tiny caterpillars arrive complete with food

We now have 3 chrysalis
