P6s become ‘Young Leaders’

During Term 1, Primary 6 have been undertaking weekly “Young Leaders” training sessions with Active Schools Co-ordinator, Sanna Aitken. The children have been learning lots of new games and how to teach these safely, as after the October holidays they will be given the opportunity to be playground “buddies” for Primary 1-4. P6s have really risen to the challenge, and led a P.E. lesson in the gym with Primary 2 before receiving their “Young Leaders” certificates last week.  They have set a great example as they settle in to life on the top floor at Bell’s Brae!


Victorian Day

This term Primary 6 have been learning all about Victorians, and we recently held our annual “Victorian Day”, where children are given the experience of what life was like for pupils during Queen Victoria’s reign.  The pupils and staff were dressed appropriately and everyone contributed to a memorable day!  We would like to express our huge thanks to Miss Swanson, who provided costumes for the day and visited both classes for a lesson in the afternoon.

Euroquiz 2018

Pupils from Primary 6 recently took part in the annual Euroquiz competition at Islesburgh Community Centre.  The event encourages children to broaden their knowledge of Europe, including subjects such as history, geography, sport, culture, languages, and the European Union.

The Euroquiz is open to P6 pupils from all over Scotland, and this year 12 teams participated in the Shetland heat.  The representatives from Bell’s Brae performed brilliantly (often out-scoring the teachers in attendance!) and only narrowly lost out in the final round.

Well done!

Reverse Advent Calendar

In December, Primary 6 and 7 at Bell’s Brae took part in a “reverse advent calendar”, where pupils were invited to bring in one food item on their allocated day, which was added to a box with contributions from the whole class.  On the last day of term, the contents of these boxes were donated to Shetland Foodbank, who sorted the contributions into emergency food parcels to be given to people in need.

More information on Shetland Foodbank is available here:
