Both Primary 5 classes had an excellent visit down to the Clickimin Broch today. We all enjoyed our walk there and had lots of fun exploring the historical site. So much fun that we forgot to take photos!
We then enjoyed a peerie picnic before heading back to school. As an end of term treat we stopped along Hayfield Park on our way.
What a busy term it has been in P6N! We’ve had a great time learning all sorts of things! We had a trip to the museum to learn all about Victorian Shetland, ‘Victorian Day’ in class, a trip to the Natural Selection Exhibition up at the old Anderson High School, and a visit from Ian Clarke, education outreach worker from the Scottish Parliament.
P4S has been studying all things weather related this term. We all enjoyed measuring the wind speed, direction, rainfall and temperature. Our co-operative learning groups took turns to read the instruments and record the information. Then we all made bar graphs to show our recordings and used 1 square to represent 2 or 5 units.
We made a display showing the seven elements of weather: clouds, precipitation, sunshine, temperature, visibility, wind force and wind direction.
Our poems were all about weather too. We typed them up in word documents and inserted clipart. We started creating factsheets about different climates and the animals that live there.
We are looking forward to our visit to the Lerwick Observatory next week to find out more about measuring weather and hope we’ll see them launching the weather balloon.
