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.
In December, Primary 6 and 7 at Bell’s Brae took part in a “reverse advent calendar”, where pupils were invited to bring in one food item on their allocated day, which was added to a box with contributions from the whole class. On the last day of term, the contents of these boxes were donated to Shetland Foodbank, who sorted the contributions into emergency food parcels to be given to people in need.
Pupils in P6n created their own French Christmas cards to send to a class at École Élémentaire Gambetta – a primary school near Bordeaux! We have received cards from their class, written in English, in response. The children in both classes did a great job!
