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.

Primary 5 coding

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.
