MOVE DAY: Seaside Holiday!

We celebrated our annual MOVE day with a “Seaside Holiday” themed day. The morning began with a parade around the school to the sounds of “Oh I do like to be beside the seaside” and “We’re all going on a summer holiday”. After a brief word of welcome by David (pupil) and Morna, the pupils were free to explore all the seaside related activities.

The nursery was turned into an underwater sea scape which was based on the story “Barry – the fish with fingers” with emphasis on the bubbles: walking over bubble wrap was great fun! Class 1’s theme was Boats and they had changed the wheelchair swing into a big boat as well as having other boat related activities in class. Class 2 became the Ice cream parlour with real icecream lollies and cones and this was enjoyed by everyone. Class 3 focused on sounds of the seaside where the sounds of dolphins, whales, seagulls, waves etc. where recorded on BigMacks. The St Crispins class had made sensory boxes with different sea side related objects such as shells, seaweed and sand. Class 4 went fishing and encouraged everyone to do the same and S1-S2 was focussing on making (and flying) kites. S3’s theme was sand, bucket and spade (ofcourse no seaside is complete without this activity!) and the senior class had planned beach games so there was beach volley ball in the hall and water pistols and guns in the courtyard. At the end, everyone came together in the hall to make waves with a large parachute. In the afternoon, Clydebuilt Puppet Theatre came and performed “The Lighthouse Keeper” to all pupils.   It was a brilliant day and even the sun shone…
