The whole school went on a trip to Kirbuster Farm Museum. The older class have been learning about the Victorians, and the younger class about farming, so it all fitted well. Nursery children were very excited to go on a trip too!
Thank you to Sue for showing us round, and to Shapinsay Community Council for funding our travel.
Today we went to King Street Halls in Kirkwall to take part in the Orkney Celebration of Engineering.
We had two teams (P1 – 4 and P5 – 7) and we made displays of our STEM work that we have been doing in school. We had to present our work to the judges.
We had lots of STEM challenges to take part in, and we learned about a TESLA electric car. We heard from people in work in engineering and learned about possible careers.
And at the very end of the day, we found out that P1 -4 had won the Primary Prize for their presentation!
