Sending off Magnie

We sent off Magnie to Lanesend Primary School in the Isle of Wight. We put all the stuff in the box to send with Magnie. We put facts about Shetland and Yell and we also put in puffin poo and The Shetland Gruffalo book and something to protect Magnie on the way to the School. Hannah and Honor and Jennifer went to the post office to send off Magnie. We sent off Magnie in the morning. They went to the Burravoe Post Office. They put the box to Gilda, the post mistress, so she can send it to Lanesend Primary School.

 

It arrived at the school and the teacher, Mr Andre, and his class unpacked the box. He had made a display of what we put in the box.

Scalloway Fire Festival

On Friday 13th January then me, my mam, my brother, my dad, my sister, my cousins, and my auntie and my uncle went to the Scalloway Fire Festival. My uncle and my cousin were Vikings. It was really interesting and cold I couldn’t feel my feet because it was so cold. There were lots and lots of people there. At the end I felt a bit warmer because they threw their torches in the Viking boat.  Some of their torches flames went out because it was so windy. The dragon eye which was on it’s head of course lit up. I really enjoyed it because there were so many Guizers.

Bowls at the Hall

On Tuesdays we have bowls at the Hall. We have a man called John Jarmson and his wife called Jean to teach us. We have a grass colour mat that’s furry and a thing called a helicopter and its not the whole helicopter it on the rotor blades that if your bowl hits hit you bowl dies and if goes off the mat it dies and if your bowls don’t get past half way mark, guess what it also dies. We had two teams of 3 and it was great.

My Trip to The British Museum in London

I went with my dad to London to get my eyes tested, In the Great Ormond Street Hospital. My Dad realised we still had half an hour till my appointment, so we went to the British Museum for a visit. I got a bit disappointed when I saw that the upstairs exhibition was closed but, I cheered up when I  realised that there was loads more exciting things downstairs too. I enjoyed looking at all souvenirs in the shop in the British Museum. We bought an orange crayon for my brother and two papyrus scrolls from the Ancient Egyptian age for my mother. Then we went into another room, in the middle of the room was a stone statue from Easter Island, behind the statue there were old tablets in a glass case people took the tablets when they were ill in the olden times. I didn’t get to see much more because we had to go to the hospital then, to get my eyes tested.

P.E. Gymnastics

In P.E. this term we have been doing gymnastics. Last week we focused on balance. We had different things that we had to go on. The first thing was a bench hooked up to a padded stool we had to walk up the bench and then we had to balance on the padded stool and then jump of. There was a few kind of ones like that. and then there were ones with spring boards at the beginning. For that you had to jump on the spring board and onto the padded stool,do a balance and then you had to jump of. The week before that we were in pairs and made short routines, I was with Emer.

My Gymnastics

Since the summer I have been training with Shetland Gymnastics Club. I have done 1 competition so far but I am going to do another one soon. It is in Inverurie. Anyone who got a medal at the competition in November, will be coming to the competition. There is also a presentation that we’re doing. We have to learn some routines. We need more time to learn our routines so we are going to start at 4 not 5. We are not going to do it normal training because we are training for 2 things at once. I am very excited for going to Inverurie because it will be my first time visiting there.

Inside The Arctic Circle

We have recently started learning about the Arctic and the Arctic circle. The younger ones did about some of the animals. The older ones picked and animal and then wrote a fact about that animal. We then had a few minutes to write down some animals we knew of in the Arctic and the Arctic circle.

We are going to learn about some of the countries inside the Arctic circle. We looked at globes to see which countries were inside the Arctic circle.

Bowls

We went to Small School Sports. We did bowls. We did practices before we did a competition. We learned how to hold a bowl. We let go of the bowls. I learned to roll the bowls properly.We threw the jack and place it anywhere. We went both sides in the rink. We did boys and girls to see who is the best at bowls. I threw the jack to its place. We had the black and brown bowls. The bowls were big. I learned how to use the bowls. We laid down the starting point. We lay down the starting point. I learned how to hold the bowl. I learned that to make sure that the bowls go by the jack to score a point. I learned to always not to throw it hard.  The boys had 4 bowls and the girls had 6 bowls. We had to aim for the jack. I got better at how to play bowls.

Taekwondo In Small School Sports

 

Taekwondo was the first activity at Small School Sports it was so exciting, because I have never been before! The Taekwondo teacher was called Pio, he comes from Barcelona. At Taekwondo we started with a warm up, after the warm up we tried out some Taekwondo moves. When we knew some of the Taekwondo moves, Pio took out two clappy things and told us to kick them, after kicking our feet hurt a bit. Then he gave all of us a cushion to kick on it we took it in turns for kicking the cushion. Then Pio said that it was the end of this activity so we moved on another activity. I really enjoyed doing this activity, my favorite thing in this activity was kicking the clappy boards.
