Learners in Primary 6 and Primary 7 marked Remembrance Day with some impressive art work.
Pupils from both Primary 6 classes formed a team to compete in the annual “Euroquiz” competition, run by the Scottish European Educational Trust. They competed against teams from 11 other Shetland schools, answering questions about the geography, history, languages and culture of Europe. They did a fantastic job of representing Bell’s Brae!
During December, several classes at Bell’s Brae were asked to consider making a donation to Shetland Foodbank as part of a ‘Reverse Advent Calendar’. In the last week of term, both Primary 6 classes carried the items to the Foodbank to help support their work during a very busy time of year.
In the run-up to the holidays, Primary 6 pupils prepared cards to exchange with partner classes on the other side of the English Channel! They did a brilliant job in writing and designing their cards, and learned some new French vocabulary.
Both Primary 6 classes presented some of their poetry work at assembly on Friday, then as a ‘brain break’ led the whole of P4-7 in a Just Dance routine! There were some very impressive moves…
Primary 6 pupils from Bell’s Brae recently took part in the Shetland heat of the annual, national “Euroquiz” competition, run by the Scottish European Educational Trust. Teams from P6n and P6s did really well in the quiz, particularly with their knowledge of the geography and languages of Europe. Well done to all who took part!
P6 have been delighted to welcome Field Studies Advisor Mr Rose to Bell’s Brae this term as part of our “Light & Sound” science topic. He has shown P6s several experiments and we have learned lots of interesting facts. Thank you, Mr Rose!
Our choir members from P5 and P6 were welcomed along to the Over 60s Club in Islesburgh on Tuesday. They entertained their audience with a selection of Christmas songs.
Huge thanks to the members who donated £45 to the choir- all monies being donated to the Archie Foundation.
This term Primary 6 have been learning all about Victorians, and we recently held our annual “Victorian Day”, where children are given the experience of what life was like for pupils during Queen Victoria’s reign. The pupils and staff were dressed appropriately and everyone contributed to a memorable day! We would like to express our huge thanks to Miss Swanson, who provided costumes for the day and visited both classes for a lesson in the afternoon.

Both Primary 6 classes were recently paid a visit by children’s evangelist Gordon McCracken and his collection of puppets! Pupils were given some tips on ventriloquism and how to pronounce tricky letters without moving their lips, before being given an opportunity to operate the puppets themselves.
