Yesterday we made pancakes to practice using measuring equipment independently – electronic scales and measuring jugs – and to show we could follow instructions successfully.
We followed a recipe in small groups and Miss Henry didn’t even need to help us! It was great practice for Secondary 1 Home Economics at the Anderson High School, which lots of us are very much looking forward to.
Today we painted the inside of shoe boxes and decorated them with a swing and a character. It was very fun! The library was very interesting and the 3D printer was very cool. The recording studio and the storage for all the extra books was very nice to look at. In the afternoon we played WII games and the laptops.
Today P7N and P7S went for a visit to the Scalloway museum, where Billy told us all about the Shetland Bus operation that took place during the Second World War. Miss Henry then took us on a walking tour to show us some local points of interest, such as the Shetland Bus memorial.
Both P7 classes have spent a morning up at the AHS this week. They all participated in cooperative learning activities with pupils from other Primary schools and they were supported by Secondary 2 AHS pupils. They had the chance to explore the building, meet new people and try out the lunches at the AHS. We have had super feedback from the pupils.
