A large number of our pupils completed the Lighthouse Trail activity sheet, designed by our art teacher Louise Birnie and supported by the Lerwick Port Authority.
Everyone who completed the activity sheets and returned it received a goodie bag, kindly donated by the Lerwick Port Authority. Two of our pupils are modelling the ‘toories’ they received.
As part of their topic on Climate, P7S took part in a poerty competition run by the Church of Scotland. Pupils were asked to write a poem to reflect their feelings about the climate emergency and the impact it is having on the world. The quality of work produced was outstanding and it was obvious to see that pupils had a lot of knowledge about climate change and COP26 and had strong feelings about these events.
Three winners in the 9-12 age group were selected and they were all from P7S! The winners were Willow, Josie & Findlay. They were invited along to a Climate Service at the Church of Scotland in Lerwick where Willow read out the poems.
A huge well done to Willow, Findlay & Josie!
Watch the videos below to listen to the winning entries. Thanks to the Church of Scotland and David and Kate Grieve for producing the videos.
Today primary seven visited the Shetland War Memorial for Remembrance Day. Whilst there pupils took part in acts of remembrance including a two minute silence, poetry reading and laying stones they had decorated with symbols of remembrance.
Pupils then had a chance to explore and record some the names on the war memorial. They were very interested and keen to find out if any of their ancestors names were included. We plan to look at the WW1 Roll of Honour next week, to find out more details about the servicemen.
