A busy term in P2n

We’ve been very busy this term. Our topics have been “Materials “ and “Houses and Homes.”

We have investigated the properties of various materials.

Our museum visit focussed on materials people used in the past and we made our own clay pot. We had a super time.


We have been working with numbers to 100, learning addition and subtraction strategies, time and measurement.


and learning about verbs, adjectives, nouns and alphabetical order.


One from the Sea, Three from the Land

This term pupils in P4n and P4s  have been learning all about Fishing. They have been lucky enough to tour a pelagic fishing boat the ‘Antarctic ll’ and had a visit from Frankie’s Fish and Chip shop to help them understand the journey of fish from the sea to their plate and making them aware of the richness around our island.

With excellent support from Izzy Swanson the pupils brought their topic to life with a special play, which they performed to their parents/carers last week.

‘One from the Sea, Three from the Land’ was written especially for the class by Izzy Swanson and brings together stories of old folklore and dialect singing.

Citizens Advice Bureau – Energy Advice Clinic

With many of us worrying about the cost of keeping our homes warm at this time of year, CAB are holding an Energy Advice clinic in Lerwick this weekend. They’ll be offering advice on understanding energy bills, switching energy supplier, installing renewables, managing fuel debt and accessing grants and loans for things like insulation, draught proofing and boilers. They have asked us to share information about their clinics with parents/carers.

School Security

To ensure the safety and security of pupils can we please remind parents/carers that access to the school building during teaching times is only permitted through the main entrance.  All other doors will remain locked until the bell rings at 3pm.

Anyone arriving at the school prior to 3pm should make themselves known to clerical staff.

Thank you for your support with this matter.

P3s Assembly – Light and Dark

P3s entertained pupils in P1-3 today with their assembly on Light and Dark.  They did an amazing job of sharing their learning with others.  Their super audience were able to recognise many of the school values in their performance.  Stating that they were like ‘Le

o the Learning Lion’, ‘Resilient Super Rabbit’, ‘Enjoyment George the Penguin’, ‘Kate the Confident Unicorn’ and ‘Robbie the Respectful Owl’.

We hope you agree…………….

Parent Council Fundraising

For many years the Parent Council have organised many events for families. These have been to provide our school community with family events and to fundraise. The fundraising is vital and provides an opportunity to purchase larger more expensive items that the school budget simply couldn’t afford.

We are absolutely thrilled to share the photos below with you. These new blinds were recently purchased by the Parent Council for the school. They are now in 6 classrooms at a cost of £4400.

The new blinds, as well giving the classrooms a lift, are ensuring the light is kept out so that learners can see the interactive whiteboards clearly.

We are extremely grateful to our supportive Parent Council for this kind donation.
