Burravoe Primary School

Queen’s Baton Relay


On Tuesday the 24th June we went to Brae to see the Baton. We went on the astro turf for Danny to give  us our  instructions. Danny is the man who organised most of this event. We went to Brae for activities. My activities were commonwealth crafts that was on from 11:3o – 12:30 AM in the secondary art room, which were making banners to hold up when the Baton came , and we got our faces or hands painted with the Shetland flag. Then we went to the Brae school trees to a mini beast hunt with Mr Rose. We did that from 1:00 – 2:00 PM. At the mini beast hunt we used Pooters to catch up the little bugs. Pooters are  little pots with two tubes coming out the lid, one tube has a black stopper, next you line up the other tube and suck on the one with the stopper and then the bug falls in to the container. Then we went back to the astro turf for the rest of our instructions. Next we had to walk to our places we had to walk to the little co-op. The baton came on the Aith life boat. Then when the life boat came in then the police came to shut the road, then the people who were carrying the baton came jogging by us. Then we had to walk back to the astro turf to sing to the baton. The song we had to sing to the baton was Here’s to all our Commonwealth and if we wanted to then we could also do it in sign language. We also met Clyde he is a big thistle that represents the Commonwealth games. He walked around but he could not see where he was going so he walked around with a lady who told him where to go. Then we got a photo with Clare Morris who held the baton. It was a great day, I really enjoyed it!
