The children in CP have been actively participating in Rugby sessions every Wednesday for the last 4 weeks with P6/7. We have learned to make a ‘w’ with our hands to catch the rugby ball. It has been lots of fun.

CP had an African drumming workshop with Dougie on Monday 18th November. We were banging the drums fast, slow, loud and quiet. We were tapping and clapping rhythms to an African song. We also listened to the didgeridoo and made different sounds using our hands. CP had lots of fun with the African drums and instruments.

Story Telling Day Thursday 24th October

Miss Armstrong read us a German story called The Gingerbread Man. We mixed up all our ingredients in a bowl and made our Gingerbread Man with some help from “Mrs Brown” (Rena). We rolled a ball of gingerbread between her hands and squashed it flat. That was to be his head. Then we made another ball, a much bigger one this time. That was to be his body. Next we made two thin rolls for his arms and two long thin rolls for his legs. Then we made two hands and two feet. What next,’ we thought. ‘Our gingerbread men need two currants for their eyes and a currant for their mouth.’

The staff and pupils in the Communication Provision raised over £300 during Autism Awareness Week in April. Half of this money was donated to the National Autistic Society (Scotland). On Wednesday 13th June Seonaigh Paterson from the National Autistic Society (Scotland) came to school to receive a cheque for £150. This money will help to fund a new befriending programme being established by the charity. A big thank you to all who supported the fundraising.

“On 19th January 2010 CP4 went to Meadowmill Sports Centre to learn how to play boccia.
Boccia is a game a bit like bowling or French boules.  We had to try to roll the ball along the floor and get it to stop as close to the other balls as we could, but we had to stay sitting down all the time.  There were children there from lots of other schools and we were all put into teams together.  The activities were quite hard, but we all did very well – Jenny even won one of the games!”  
CP4 Christmas Outing
We got a number 44 bus to Princes Street and sat at the back. We were all very polite to the driver and remembered what to do with our money and tickets.

When we arrived we looked at Santa’s reindeer garden first. The reindeer were having their lunch. Santa came along to help feed them. We all waved!

Next we had a ride on Santa’s Express. It took us all around Princes Street Gardens. It went fast down the hill. That was great fun and we really enjoyed it!

Then we went into Santa’s Igloos to eat our lunch and listen to Santa telling a Christmas story. We said hello to him and told him what we wanted for Christmas.

These are some photographs of us all having fun.
