As part of our ICT lessons over the last few weeks, some of the P5 pupils kindly agreed to share their knowledge on coding using a programme Scratch with both Primary 5 classes.
They started each session by doing some direct teaching using the interactive whiteboards in the classroom. The pupils then used the ICT suite where they have been responsible for their own group of pupils to help them learn how to code their own computer programme.
All the pupils have been really engaged and love using Scratch and it has been excellent to see the children sharing their own knowledge and skills with their peers and taking ownership over their learning.
We are so proud of our Primary Netball team who were awarded the Sportsmanship Award as part of the Shetland Primary Netball League. The girls have taken part in a number of matches against teams from all over Shetland and have been great representatives of Bell’s Brae.
Here they are at training on Monday accepting their certificates and trophy! 🙂
Jess and Johnny (Pupil Council Vice Chair and Chair Person) were busy yesterday giving our benches a new lease of life with paint the Pupil Council bought from Frank Williamson. They particularly enjoyed wearing their overalls! 🙂
Four of our P5s pupils watched Newsround and were very interested in a report about litter. They decided that they would try to make a difference and spent their lunchtime gathering up all the litter that had blown below the fences in our P5-7 playground. They got a whole black bag full.
They have now asked if they can regularly look out for litter in both playgrounds. It is great to have young people who are proactive and look after the environment.
