Christmas Lunch

What a great day in the dinner hall today celebrating our annual Christmas lunch. There was a fantastic buzz around the room as the children were singing songs, laughing and enjoying their meal. A joy to see. A big thank you to our catering team for making this event happen.

Primary 7B are continuing to develop their skills in and out of the kitchen but Thursday seen them take on a new challenge, making their own macaroni cheese with only a recipe to follow. Lots of skills were tackled including:

  • Communication
  • Supporting others
  • Delegating tasks
  • Problem solving
  • Identifying risk
  • Teamwork
  • Time management

“We were separated into four teams and had to cooperate with our team mates. We had to make the pasta and the cheese sauce by ourselves using complicated utensils.” – Sophia

“We had to communicate with our team mates otherwise we wouldn’t get anything done. It was important to support each other so that nothing dangerous happened when working with knives, graters and boiling water. Also it meant that everyone had a role in the team to make it cook in time.” – Matthew and Orla

“We learned that ‘teamwork makes the dream work’ and that it’s important to share our knowledge and skills so that people learn and know how to do it the next time by themselves.” – Sean and Mackenzie

It’s clear P7 are enjoying these new learning opportunities and additional responsibility. They are looking forward to the next challenge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our Mud Kitchen Has Arrived!

B0799BF4-CB2F-48D1-AF0F-3C3425B780B51BCCD94C-4B44-4526-9E99-CCD6E422CACDEF853B9E-0096-4D49-9212-D1CD959CAEA56B7C4A3C-DA16-4F83-B5E8-6C0806F2B8DCWe are delighted to see the arrival of our new purpose built mud kitchen in our nursery garden. A huge thank you to Orocco Joinery for taking on the project and producing such a wonderful resource for our children. In the words of Jude, “It’s fantastic!” Another big thank you to St. John’s Parent Council for providing this for our nursery as it will be enjoyed for years to come.

Nursery Welly Walk

The nursery class went on a welly walk around Figgate Park to raise funds to develop our nursery garden. We were very lucky with the weather as it was dry but the park had lots of puddles for us to splash in! The park has lots of signs of spring such as daffodils, blossom on the trees and the children spotted that the birds were starting to build their nests in the trees.

We were on ‘otter watch’ on the bridge (with no sighting to report) and the swans and ducks were keen to come over and see what we were doing. Our reflections in the water were a great talking point and we even found a robot in the park. Some of the children suspected that the robot got up there using honey that he stuck on his shoes.

We are delighted to report that the welly walk has raised over £835. Thank you to all who sponsored us and to all the helpers on the day. Well done boys and girls!
