We were so fortunate to receive some sponsorship from Greig Seafood Shetland to allow us to purchase waterproof suits for all our P1 pupils. This has allowed the children to get outside every day to have fun playing with their classmates and benefit from fresh air, exercise and outdoor learning.
Yesterday morning, Primary 1n made ice cubes for an experiment that afternoon.
In the afternoon, we spoke about the frosty weather we have had this past week. We discussed how we stay safe outside in icy conditions and the purpose of “grit”. We made predictions on what would happen if we put grit on an ice cube, and what would happen to an ice cube left alone in the classroom.
We went out for a walk near to the school and spotted some grit salt boxes. We gathered some grit for our experiment. We saw the gritter out, gritting the roads ahead of another cold night.
Back in school we carried out our experiment. The ice cubes covered in grit did in fact melt much quicker than the ice cubes left alone!
Today we spent the morning making pancakes and after break we went to the flower park with Sanna to do some golf putting and play short tennis. In the afternoon the pupils went to the Clickimin broch to do some sketching with Miss Birnie.
