Bell’s Brae School will close at 3pm as usual today. Nursery will also close at 3pm.
The P1 show scheduled for this afternoon will go ahead at 2pm.
However, please note the following –
- Study Club has been cancelled
- Choir Practice has been cancelled
- Parent Council Christmas Disco has been cancelled
In the interests of both pupil and staff safety, there will be no crossing patrol staff on Gilbertson Road or at the bottom of Bell’s Road. If your child(ren) usually walk home, can you please arrange for them to be collected from their classrooms.
It is at parents/carers’ discretion should they wish to collect their child(ren) early given the adverse weather conditions.
Due to the adverse weather conditions and the ongoing winter bugs we have decided to cancel the disco tonight.
Refunds are available from our school office.
Last Tuesday, the Bell’s Brae P5-7 Christmas Choir went to the Over 60s Club at Islesburgh. They performed a selection of festive songs which they have been busy rehearsing at after-school choir. The audience really enjoyed their programme and complemented them on their singing. This year, the choir decided to collect money for the Shetland MRI Scanner, to which the Over 60s Club very kindly donated £113! Many thanks to the club for inviting our school choir to perform and for making such a kind donation.
The Christmas Choir will be performing at the Lerwick Baptist Church, Quoys, on Saturday 14th December at 2pm. Again, there will be a donations tub to gather money for the Shetland MRI Scanner.
Yesterday morning, Primary 1n made ice cubes for an experiment that afternoon.
In the afternoon, we spoke about the frosty weather we have had this past week. We discussed how we stay safe outside in icy conditions and the purpose of “grit”. We made predictions on what would happen if we put grit on an ice cube, and what would happen to an ice cube left alone in the classroom.
We went out for a walk near to the school and spotted some grit salt boxes. We gathered some grit for our experiment. We saw the gritter out, gritting the roads ahead of another cold night.
Back in school we carried out our experiment. The ice cubes covered in grit did in fact melt much quicker than the ice cubes left alone!
Tonight we are hosting our first Fish and Chip Fundraiser. This afternoon there has been a buzz of activity in the canteen. Some p7 pupils chose to help set up during Golden Time. The canteen ladies are busy prepping lovely, fresh haddocks. We hope many of you can come along.
