Goodbye P7 and Best Wishes

 

The end of term always brings mixed emotions.  Everyone is excited about going on holiday but there is also sadness at having to say goodbye to so many lovely pupils.

Our current P7 pupils have had a year like no other but they have shown tremendous resilience .  Our school vision is ‘Bell’s Brae is a community where everyone achieves and gains happy memories’.  We know they have all achieved and sincerely hope they leave here with many happy memories.

 

Bell’s Brae Choir 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.

Sharing Stories

Primary 5s have created their own ‘alternative’ fairy tales.  We spent some time exploring a variety of picture books which had alternative endings to the traditional stories we all know.   The children then had to write their own version and turn it into a picture book which they then shared with P1n.

The boys and girls in P1 loved this and said that they recognised the stories but they were much more interesting and really liked the illustrations! P5 really enjoyed being able to share their work with some of our younger children and P1n were excellent listeners!

Leading Learning in Lerwick’s Primary Schools

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.
