March to June 2019
Spruce class have continued to have a busy and active year. We have particularly enjoyed becoming familiar and confident at using the public bus. This has allowed us the freedom to access a range of opportunities in our local community and beyond such as the shops, swimming, the cinema, the museum and the arts centre.We especially enjoy visiting different outdoor, natural spaces such as the Botanics, Cramond beach, Lauriston Castle and Pittencrieff Park.
Through these experiences and many more, we continue to develop our independence skills which helps prepare us for life after school.
A highlight for us this year has been our Spruce Social Lunches where we go shopping, cook it then eat it! This is a chance for us to all eat, socialise and have fun together- either inside or outdoors picnic style when we are out and about.
Some other highlights include: our Christmas trip to the cinema to see The Grinch, feeding the ducks at the Botanics, taking part in the Climate Change protest, meeting first minister Nicola Sturgeon, washing the tractor at Holyrood Challenge, weekly Spruce swim, outdoor learning week and ice lollies in the playground when the sun was shining!
We are ready for a chilled summer holiday but look forward to picking all this up again in August!
August to October 2018
Spruce class have hit the ground running with a very busy start to the term. We have had lots of fun soaking up the last of the sunshine and exploring our local area. We have been taking part in a range of community activities such as Music for All, Sports College, Pilton Community Garden project and fruit picking at Craigie Farm. We are an active class who like to be on the move so, expect to see us all over the city from Ikea to North Edinburgh Arts Centre.
We are working hard to be as independent as possible and develop our skills both in school and in the wider community. Next term we are focussing on using public transport so keep your eyes peeled for us!
