In the run-up to the holidays, Primary 6 pupils prepared cards to exchange with partner classes on the other side of the English Channel! They did a brilliant job in writing and designing their cards, and learned some new French vocabulary.
Last week the children from Primary 1 entertained the school and family and friends with their nativity ‘Busy, Busy Bethlehem’. The boys and girls have spent many weeks learning their parts and their songs and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the 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.
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.
Pupils in P6n created their own French Christmas cards to send to a class at École Élémentaire Gambetta – a primary school near Bordeaux! We have received cards from their class, written in English, in response. The children in both classes did a great job!
