Scottish Wars Stop Motion

This term both P5 classes have been learning all about the Scottish Wars of Independence.  To finish off the topic, we worked in small groups to create a stop motion animation using lego.  This was really enjoyed by everyone.  Here are just a couple of examples.



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.

Bell’s Brae Choir Performance

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.
