A fantastic year in Beech class!

What a brilliant year we had in Beech class! We have worked hard and achieved a lot!
In the beginning of the year, we explored some of the Scottish Children’s Literature and we enjoyed listening to stories and making small Art projects! This year, we have learnt a lot about healthy eating and choosing balanced meals. We enjoyed learning about parts of our bodies and their role as well. Finally, we looked into different countries, their traditions and special celebrations.
We had fun at the park, playground, bus trips and in class. We loved our cooking sessions and all the yummy things we made. Most importantly, we became friends and we laughed a lot! What a team we have been! Time to enjoy the summer…

Diversity week!

Prospect bank finished celebrating our diversity week with a special Diversity snack. We all enjoyed tasting different foods from other countries and some more exotic fruit. The classes have all been celebrating the different nationalities represented in school. Some of the class activities included enjoying a Carnival, listening to songs & music from other countries, making flags, dressing up as Maori’s and doing the Haka. We have also been thinking of our friends at Broader Horizons School in Sudan by collecting for Rag Bag to support them.

 

Chestnut class’s butterflies!

Five tiny caterpillars arrived in Chestnut Class two weeks ago. We watched them grow big and fat before they built their cocoons. On Friday two of our butterflies came out of their cocoons and we let them go in the sensory garden. The other three came out of their cocoons over the weekend and have flown away too. If you see a beautiful butterfly in your garden or at the park it could be one from Chestnut Class!

Forest Schools in the Snow

It’s been quite an experience out at Carberry over the last couple of weeks with all the snow flurries, sleet and rain and the children have been complete stars and had a great time!
We’ve searched for tracks in the snow, looked for signs of spring, caught snowflakes in our tongues and played games in the woods. Well done Chestnuts and Rowans, you’ve shown real resilience coping with all the weather!

Broader Horizons School Sudan update

We are continuing to support the children and staff of the Broader Horizons school. After the very successful shipment of resources last summer we have continued to raise money with the Rag bag donations since returning to school in August. We had raised just over £200 in December and as Mrs Ali’s Husband Akram was going to visit his family in January he took the donation to present to the school. The head teacher Mrs Iklas was delighted to receive the money. This is equivalent to a months salary for a teacher so it will help support the school further. Akram visited the school on Monday 5th February. He was welcomed by the whole school, children and staff. The pupils put on a show  for him and were singing and dancing for and with him, you will see him on the end of the video (in a navy top, jeans and red trainers) dancing with one of the children. Some photos of the whole event also included. We will continue to support the school through out the rest of the year.
