On Wednesday 10th May, we had a visit from Morrison’s construction, who are building the new AHS. They provided a really interesting workshop for P7S, with 3 different activities. One involved creating a solid construction using cocktail sticks and midget gems. The second activity was a word search containing different words associated with the construction industry. The third activity involved pupils looking at a diagram of the new AHS and considering which roles each members on the site had. The session ended with a visit from their ‘mascots’!
We have added a new calendar to the front page of the website. This contains all key dates – holidays, in-service days, sports day and much more. You can view other months and click on events to find out more.
We hope parents/carers will find this link useful.
On Friday at Assembly the pupils from Primary 4s shared their learning with the pupils from Primary 4-7. They did an excellent presentation about Living Things sharing all the facts they had learned. They involved the audience too!
They finished the Assembly with a wonderful song sung entirely in French! It was lovely to see them all enjoying their learning and having the confidence to share it with their peers!

In Primary 2s they have been looking at different parts of a plant as part of their Growth Topic. The children had to figure out what part of the plant they were looking at and then they prepared the vegetables and fruit and had a salad bar where they got to choose what they would like to eat.
They will be writing up their salad recipes next week.
This morning Primary 1s delivered a very interesting and engaging assembly to P1-3. They told an interactive story about Noah’s ark and sang to all the children.
The feedback from their audience was that it was very good and awesome because the story was good, they spoke in nice clear voices, they did some actions and sang to them.
Today the Primary 5, 6 and 7 classes were lucky to get to visit The Magpie Big Top to take part in circus workshops. It was a beautiful day for the classes to walk to the playing park and learn new skills with the performers who are visiting Shetland.
The pupils all had a fantastic time. Ellis and Callum from P5S said it was their first time at a circus and they had really enjoyed using the flower sticks to try out tricks.
Alfie from P5s had found it very satisfying when he had been able to master a skill using the sticks.
The photos below show how much fun the children had!
We have added a new page to the parent’s section of our school website to support learning at home.
This page titled ‘Learning at Home’ will provide parents/carers with fun ideas and suggestions to support their children and enhance their learning experience.
A lot of parents/carers are doing these things already but might enjoy looking through some of the ideas.
