    • It is good because it is fun I like being with the little ones and the bigones and it is not to big and we work together and we go in pairs to do some work and we are great learners. I like when we all play outside together. We all know each other and where we live.


  4. Dear Leah,
    Sounds like a great trip, I hope you had a great time there.
    I wish I went there, It would be amazing to see the spinning wheel.
    I have never seen a spinning wheel before. What does it do ?
    In Australia it is nearly winter and I’m starting to get cold. Right now it is sunny and some of us are still in shorts. I hope your weather gets better.

  7. Hi, I’m Jessica from New Gisborne P.S,
    It must have been pretty cool to go on excursion to a historical place. Do you know what actually happened at Jarlshof in the earlier years? I would really like to find out. All the year 5s from our school went on a historical walk through New Gisborne. The oldest building on a walk was the ‘Whistle Stop Tavern’ which was built in 1853. All of you looked very cold in the pictures. What season is it over in Scotland because it looks like winter?

    From Jessica.

  8. Hello Burravoe Primary School,

    Your trip to Jarlshof must have been fun. You look very cold. It’s nearly winter here and we’re hardly wearing jumpers. Today is about 20 degrees, Celsius.

    The oldest building in New Gisborne was built in 1853.

    How old was the crofthouse?

    Yours sincerely,


    New Gisborne Primary School.

  9. I bet that field trip was FUN!!! What is ocain slime
