Jubilee Dance

It was wonderful to see so many pupils, parents and grandparents at the Jubilee Dance tonight.  What a super night – great music by the Peter Wood Dance Band, a lovely supper – big thank you  to Carol Jamieson, champion bannock maker and Dorothy Robertson for the soup.

The P7 pupils did a fantastic job pulling it all together and getting the school looking so good. We were impressed with all the dancing.

Thank you for supporting us and helping us raise money towards the P7 trips this year.

Primary 7N Board Games

Primary 7N have also been busy creating their own board games, with instructions, in cooperative learning groups. They were inspired by their class novel – “The Brilliant World of Tom Gates” by Liz Pichon. Pichon uses lots of doodle cartoons and calligrams to make her stories even more interesting. P7N used these techniques on their board games to make them really eye catching and quirky.

We had a really fun afternoon playing our completed board games.

Primary 2n Birthdays

This term P2n have been celebrating Birthdays as a topic. We have been learning the months of the year, days of the week and seasons. We enjoyed playing in our birthday party role play area with party plates, cups and a birthday cake.

We have also made our own Birthday party hats and decorated party plates with a pattern of different colours. We have enjoyed this topic!

The weather today …

P4S has been studying all things weather related this term. We all enjoyed measuring the wind speed, direction, rainfall and temperature. Our co-operative learning groups took turns to read the instruments and record the information.  Then we all made bar graphs to show our recordings and used 1 square to represent 2 or 5 units.

We made a display showing the seven elements of weather: clouds, precipitation, sunshine, temperature, visibility, wind force and wind direction.

Our poems were all about weather too. We typed them up in word documents and inserted clipart. We started creating factsheets about different climates and the animals that live there.

We are looking forward to our visit to the Lerwick Observatory next week to find out more about measuring weather and hope we’ll see them launching the weather balloon.
