Chicken Update

Pecky, our Vorwerk cockerel, had got a bit too big for us to keep and was a bit noisy for our neighbours! Claire, who keeps lots of chickens, has 4 Vorwerk hens so she was really happy to give Pecky a new home. So that Chirpy, who is a Colombian Blacktail, won’t be lonely Jennifer gave us one of her Welsummer hens to keep her company. We have called the new hen Barbara.

V scene with Leverhulme School in Harris

Today we had a video conference with  Leverhulme School. In January we had told them all about Cullivoe Up Helly Aa and today they told us about living on Harris. The pictures of their island are very beautiful. We were able to share about our wildlife; we have lots that are the same but they have deer which we don’t. We all agreed that we have lots of sheep!

World Book Day 2019

On World Book Day we had to dress up as a character from a book using the clothes that is in our dressing up box at school. I was a witch. After you’ve gotten your clothes done then you need to start making an accessory, my accessory was a wand that was made from a card tube, glitter and masking tape. We also did a 55 word challenge to write a story only using 55 words.

Red Nose Day 2019

On 15/3/19 it is Red Nose Day and we are going to be dressing up in as many dressing up clothes in one minute we are going to do it one after the other. We are going to do it at 11:30. We are hoping to raise a few pounds we don’t expect hundreds of pounds as there are only 11 of us in our school. We raised £27.34 we were really pleased with that amount.

Iain Clark – Scottish Parliament

On Wednesday 13th of March Iain Clark from Scottish Parliament came for the afternoon to talk about how the Scottish Parliament works and where it is. After we got Clickapads to answer questions for quizzes. After we chose a party to represent; they were the Music Party and The Animal Welfare Party. After we had to come up with two reasons why we need to be elected. After we chose a Presiding Officer. The Presiding Officer had a wooden hammer called a gaveland he will bang it when a new law has passed/fallen. We did a debate if we should do an hour of PE Everyday. The groups had to think why it is a good thing and why it was a bad thing. Then after everybody voted it is good or not. It was yes. Then after it had to be sent to the Queen to be made into a law. It had to have a royal seal on it to keep it protected. Then it was sent back to the Parliament.

Knitting

These past couple of terms P4 to P7 have been doing knitting with Mary. We are all doing something different, what we are doing is wrist warmers, lambs, penguins, pin cushions and scarfs. We have learned how to do purl and how to cast on and off and how to do normal knitting. When we first started we did bookmarks then we did chicks. On the wrist warmer we had to do a pattern and use three needles; we are all aiming to do a Fair Isle pattern.

Corraflute Vehicles

P4-P7 have made land yachts. The cars can ride very fast down the ramp even on the flat floor. Our land yacht is made out of something called corraflute and the axles are made out of something called doweling and the axles have straws on them so they can move with the wheels on them. The sail on our land yachts is made out of corraflute to but it is stuck on to the bottom with masking tape.

John Byrne 2019

This year P4- P7 entered the competition, everyone else did a drawing as well just to hang up on the wall. In the John Byrne Competition there is no theme so everyone just drew what they wanted, but the only rules are you can not use anything other than pencils and colouring pencils, also you can’t draw from a picture you can only get inspiration from them if needed.
