Nursery children have been learning about ‘Building and buildings’ this term. They have been exploring patterns in their environment, building models using junk and construction, measuring the size of objects using blocks, rulers, straws and string, and looking at similarities and differences of buildings in the area.
Leadership Matters is a week of events and activities, organised by NHS staff exploring what leadership is and means for all our communities in Shetland. As part of this week our learners were asked to present how they demonstrate leadership in their schools.
We are extremely proud of how well they have worked with others. You can view their impressive presentation skills in the attached clip.
As part of our ICT lessons over the last few weeks, some of the P5 pupils kindly agreed to share their knowledge on coding using a programme Scratch with both Primary 5 classes.
They started each session by doing some direct teaching using the interactive whiteboards in the classroom. The pupils then used the ICT suite where they have been responsible for their own group of pupils to help them learn how to code their own computer programme.
All the pupils have been really engaged and love using Scratch and it has been excellent to see the children sharing their own knowledge and skills with their peers and taking ownership over their learning.
