Both Primary 5 classes had an excellent visit down to the Clickimin Broch today. We all enjoyed our walk there and had lots of fun exploring the historical site. So much fun that we forgot to take photos!
We then enjoyed a peerie picnic before heading back to school. As an end of term treat we stopped along Hayfield Park on our way.
Pupils from our Early Learning and Childcare Setting, with a little help from some P6 pupils enjoyed planting some wild flowers on the small hill outside the setting. We hope that over time this will improve the area and attract some birds and insects.
Special thanks to Olaf Isbister and the Planticrub for their kind donation of flowers and for providing the equipment for our young people to use.
We have been extremely lucky to receive a donation of 20 trees from the Lerwick Port Authority. This donation from the Port Authority offsets their paper usage.
This morning Lerwick Port Authority were on hand to support our staff and pupils to plant these trees at the back of our school car park. Once these trees grow we are hoping that as well as enhancing the area it will reduce the amount of grass cutting required. All helping the environment.
Look at the feedback we received from Port Authority staff about our young people:
‘The pupils were excellent. They were friendly and enthusiastic, confident with people new to them and very keen to participate. Everyone got a chance to get involved with all parts of the planting process and they worked very well together. Their behaviour was a credit to themselves and the school.’
We were delighted to be able to have our P4-7 Sports Day yesterday.
It was great to see most of the pupils enjoying themselves and trying their hardest. Everyone’s contribution was important and supported their team – Thorfinn, Olaf or Magnus.
One the day Olaf were the winning team and captains Kali Thomson and Leo Murray Wiseman were proud of accept the shield on behalf of their team.
Weather permitting the P4-7 classes will have their Sports Day on Tuesday 25 June at 0930.
We were pleased that it cleared up yesterday afternoon for the P1-3 classes. The pupils worked hard to score points for their team and showed lots of enjoyment. Team Thorfinn gained the most points but they were all winners!
Well that’s us all safely on the boat heading home after four fun filled days!
Yesterday afternoon we spent the afternoon at the Museum of Flight – learning all about different aircrafts and carrying out a number of different interactive activities.
Today, everyone has enjoyed spending the rest of their money. Primark was a big hit!
Today began with a great walk to the Edinburgh Castle. It has stayed nice and dry for us all day. We enjoyed a walk around the castle before heading to Camera Obscura, where we had lots of fun!
After lunch we set off for Laser Quest, where everyone showed their competitive side. Mr Sandison was the winner!
We ate in Mr Basari’s, probably over indulging again! The more competitive games at Ten Pin Bowling. It was lovely to watch everyone having so much fun 🙂
After a quick shot at the amusements we headed back to the Hostel for a wash and an early bed before a 0700 start tomorrow.
Monday 10 June was a busy day. After arriving safely in Aberdeen we headed for Blair Drummond. We enjoyed beautiful sunshine while the pupils had fun playing and viewing the different animals.
After the sea lion show and a quick bite to eat we headed for the Birds of Prey Show. Unfortunately this was cut short due to rain and the ray did not seem to want to stop!
We arrived safely at the hostel and after settling in we headed to Cosmos for a huge feed!!
We rounded off our night with a walk to the top of Carlton Hill.
All our young people have had a great night’s sleep and are now all set for day 2
