Room 4 have been reading ‘The New Friend’ by Alex Scheffler for their book study this term.
In the book, the main characters Pip and Posy make a new friend at the beach and they work together to build a sandcastle.
We enjoyed the book so much that we thought we would have a go at making our own sandcastles! We visited the beach and worked together to build our own sandcastles. We thought we did a good job. What do you think? We even made our own new friend when we went looking in the rock pools!

Everyone enjoyed the Potted Sports organised by our PE Department on Wednesday. Thank you to everyone involved for the hard work that went into this, including our Howes Hoose pupils who supported at the stations. We all had a great time moving around in our class groups, finishing up with a running ‘marathon’ for any Secondary pupils wishing to participate. They were well supported by those opting to spectate.
The children in Room 4 have been very busy making fruit scones in home economics.
They were supported to measure out the different ingredients using the scales and we all enjoyed taking turns at mixing the ingredients with a spoon.
We are learning about how to move our bodies indoors, outside and in the hydrotherapy pool. We are developing our abilities to climb, jump, spin, roll and pedal. We enjoy exploring the natural environment and the toys in the garden.
Our little musicians have been thoroughly enjoying their music sessions with our Music Teacher. Engaging with the songs and music through percussion instruments, streamers and bubbles.
Room 5 have been on a very exciting class trip to Aberdeen Airport.
We all have a fantastic time! We got to go through security, go onto a plane and sit in the pilots seat, drive down the runway, visit the fire station and spray the water hose and of course see lots of planes and helicopters take off and land. George and Ali at Aberdeen Airport were brilliant tour guides!!!
