P7S Climate Poetry Winners

As part of their topic on Climate, P7S took part in a poerty competition run by the Church of Scotland.  Pupils were asked to write a poem to reflect their feelings about the climate emergency and the impact it is having on the world.  The quality of work produced was outstanding and it was obvious to see that pupils had a lot of knowledge about climate change and COP26 and had strong feelings about these events.

Three winners in the 9-12 age group were selected and they were all from P7S!  The winners were Willow, Josie & Findlay.  They were invited along to a Climate Service at the Church of Scotland in Lerwick where Willow read out the poems.

A huge well done to Willow, Findlay & Josie!

Watch the videos below to listen to the winning entries.  Thanks to the Church of Scotland and David and Kate Grieve for producing the videos.


P7 CWGC visitor

This afternoon P7 had a visit from Patricia Keppie who works for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission are responsible for maintaining the war graves and cemeteries in this country and abroad. The pupils were very interested in the topic and it built on previous learning from our WW2 topic.


STEM Challenge

Today in P7S we took part in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) challenge relating to our class novel ‘Holes’ by Louis  Sachar.

In groups, we had to design and create a free standing hammock out of junk and craft materials which would hold a duplo character. We also tested them to failure to see how much weight they would hold – the winner could hold a staggering 750kg!

Baldy Bane Theatre Company Performance

Primary six and seven enjoyed a performance called ‘The Journey’  by the Baldy Bane Theatre company this morning.  The performance was ‘forum theatre’ which meant that the pupils were able to particiapte throughout the play and were invited to make certain decisions to determine the outcome of the scenes.  The key messages of the play were all about road safety.  The pupils shared a lot of great knowledge to ensure a safe outcome for all of the characters in the play.
