Pupils from our Early Learning and Childcare Setting, with a little help from some P6 pupils enjoyed planting some wild flowers on the small hill outside the setting. We hope that over time this will improve the area and attract some birds and insects.
Special thanks to Olaf Isbister and the Planticrub for their kind donation of flowers and for providing the equipment for our young people to use.
We have been extremely lucky to receive a donation of 20 trees from the Lerwick Port Authority. This donation from the Port Authority offsets their paper usage.
This morning Lerwick Port Authority were on hand to support our staff and pupils to plant these trees at the back of our school car park. Once these trees grow we are hoping that as well as enhancing the area it will reduce the amount of grass cutting required. All helping the environment.
Look at the feedback we received from Port Authority staff about our young people:
‘The pupils were excellent. They were friendly and enthusiastic, confident with people new to them and very keen to participate. Everyone got a chance to get involved with all parts of the planting process and they worked very well together. Their behaviour was a credit to themselves and the school.’
Well that’s us all safely on the boat heading home after four fun filled days!
Yesterday afternoon we spent the afternoon at the Museum of Flight – learning all about different aircrafts and carrying out a number of different interactive activities.
Today, everyone has enjoyed spending the rest of their money. Primark was a big hit!
Today began with a great walk to the Edinburgh Castle. It has stayed nice and dry for us all day. We enjoyed a walk around the castle before heading to Camera Obscura, where we had lots of fun!
After lunch we set off for Laser Quest, where everyone showed their competitive side. Mr Sandison was the winner!
We ate in Mr Basari’s, probably over indulging again! The more competitive games at Ten Pin Bowling. It was lovely to watch everyone having so much fun 🙂
After a quick shot at the amusements we headed back to the Hostel for a wash and an early bed before a 0700 start tomorrow.
Our topic is water and today we went to the Museum to learn how people washed their clothes long ago.
We pretended we were in the olden days and used a washboard, brush, soap and dolly to wash the Museum’s dirty tea towels 🙂 What a fun we had!
