Celebrating the Patron saints days have been central to our British values cultural experiences and the story of St. George and the Dragon offered plenty of opportunity for literacy development through the telling of the story and drama workshops.
During our Easter weekend the children were able to experience an Easter egg hunt, an Easter assembly, and plenty of chocolate based cooking. Over the following weekend the Easter theme was followed up by developing the topic of spring.
The students follow a themed weekend programme and in March they explored the world of the dinosaurs and enjoyed plenty of indoor leisure activities as well as developing some of their literacy skills. Sensory foods formed part of the weekend and the Dinosaur green jelly was quite a hit.
Some of the year 11 students completed work experience around the school premises.
Pancake races and obstacles courses were the order of the day on Shrove Tuesday as the children and staff joined the English tradition of racing while tossing pancakes.
A weekend full of things we love, cake making and craft activities with a lot of hearts, pink icing and love.
A weekend of Scottish crafts, food and music to celebrate our British culture.
Plenty of sensory play exploring moon rocks during the space weekend. The children created a space ‘Wow’ board and sent a picture to Tim Peake in space, and we were all delighted when he twitted us back direct from outer space. (See our twitter site for more information)
Creative arts subjects are important in our PLLUSS curriculum and with drama, music and art available the students are able to explore a wide range of creative arts.
Taking on the restaurant experience at our local ‘friendly’ pub the Spruce Goose, the students dressed in their Christmas jumpers and enjoyed the festive fayre.
