On Burns Day, Room 17 held a Burns Supper. We piped the haggis in, listened to a poem about the haggis, toasted the haggis and ate our haggis, neeps and tatties! We then danced a ceilidh dance we learned and finished our Burns Supper by singing Auld Lang Syne.
Our wonderful Makaton Choir have created a new Video for you to watch. We hope you enjoy watching it.
Children in Room 11 have been having fun and celebrating Robert Burns. They have been listening to Scottish music, tasting and smelling haggis, neeps and tatties. They have also been listening to famous poems “To a Mouse” and “A Red , Red Rose”. We were having fun singing Scottish songs and being part of the whole school Ceilidh! All children loved playing the fiddle too!
Class 10 enjoy taking part in yoga lessons, where they watch and copy the poses from the interactive board in class. Everyone joins in, has lots of fun and enjoys a good stretch!
On Thursday the 24th of January we had our Burns Lunch followed by a very successful Ceilidh. It was wonderful to see so many people enjoying themselves, dancing to the music provided by our Music Therapist, Drumming Instructor and their musical friends. A big Thank You to all of them for coming along to help us celebrate Robert Burns Day.
The children in class 10 enjoyed taking part in a painting lesson that linked in with our colour theme for this term. They produced some very beautiful work between them.
A new term and a new work placement for one young man who started working at Airyhall Community Centre this week. His main job is to help Karen keep the Centre clean and tidy especially the toddlers play area; those of you who have little children will know how difficult this is!
Well done on a positive and enthusiastic start.
Room 14 have been learning about our bodies and focusing on hand washing. We used the Glitter Bugs hand washing equipment to show where the bacteria is on our hands. Everyone enjoyed participating in this activity.
Today we had fun turn taking and exploring a variety of games.
Room 15 pupils were excited to see the snow last week. Some of us lay down and made snow angels. We enjoyed holding some cold snow in their hands and one of us insisted on taking her snow back in to class with her! Guess who that might have been! We were all full of smiles and did some great sharing.
The morning children at Ashgrove had great fun playing in the first snowfall of the New Year. They were able to experience and develop an awareness of changes in their environment. Some of them particularly enjoyed balancing on the logs and examining their footprints whilst others enjoyed running down the ramp.
