P7S trip to the Shetland Museum and Archives

P7S went to visit the Shetland Museum last Wednesday. They were shown some exhibits from Shetland during WWII in the display cabinet and also had the chance to make peg dolls after thinking about the ‘Make Do And Mend’ policy, of making the best use of materials at the time.

P7S are also very busy making Anderson Shelters at the moment as part of our WWII topic. So far this has involved a great deal of problem solving – and fun!

P7 transition mornings

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. 

Visit from Morrison’s Construction

On Wednesday 10th May, we had a visit from Morrison’s construction, who are building the new AHS. They provided a really interesting workshop for P7S, with 3 different activities. One involved creating a solid construction using cocktail sticks and midget gems. The second activity was a word search containing different words associated with the construction industry. The third activity involved pupils looking at a diagram of the new AHS and considering which roles each members on the site had. The session ended with a visit from their ‘mascots’!
