Our long weekend was very much welcomed and with it the warm weather most of us enjoyed. There has been a definitive shift in temperature as the week has progressed however but this has not deterred us from getting out and about as much as possible. As yet we are unable to participate in PE indoors and will be making the most of our generous outdoor space.

We are all feeling grateful for decent weather this week and pupils have been enjoying outdoor activities including painting, gardening and mindfulness walks.

Another week has flown during which a number of our younger pupils increased their time in school having enjoyed a soft start to their transition. Some were increasing their time with us and others continuing with full days, with some seniors finding their feet back in Knox Academy, and all our pupils have continued to amaze and impress me with their #WhatWeCanDo #WeCanDoIt attitude.

This week has felt like autumn coping with Storm Francis: high winds and heavy rain can deter the hardiest of souls but once again Meadowpark staff and pupils have excelled themselves with limited resources during wet breaks, using their creativity and knowledge of pupils to ensure safety, motivation and stimulation.
