Pupils in P7n and P7s had an opportunity today to interview this year’s Guiser Jarl for Lerwick Up Helly Aa, Stewart Jamieson, along with his son, Haydn. Pupils in these classes have been planning the interview since we came back after the Christmas holidays, thinking carefully about the difference between open and closed questions. Stewart took in the helmet, shield and axe he wore and carried when he was in the Junior Jarl Squad as a young boy. The pupils really enjoyed asking him questions and it gave them a real insight into what is involved in becoming Jarl as well as the build up to Up Helly Aa day at the end of January. We wished Stewart and Haydn all the best for the big day with three cheers at the end of the interview.
K and I
Today P7S had a lot of fun writing a dialogue between two characters, which they had created as puppets beforehand! Their task was to write a conversation between their characters and punctuate their speech. They then performed their conversation (using their writing as a script) to the class.
ASN Department Sea Themed activities 5th-16th June
As part of our sea themed activities we visited the Sands of Sound beach.
We looked for the things in the pictures below and we tried feeling and touching the sand. We also made sandcastles!
Me and Harris have been working on a wind turbine animation on scratch we will be using this for our wind power presentation in a few weeks time.
On Wednesday 10th May, we had a visit from Morrison’s construction, who are building the new AHS. They provided a really interesting workshop for P7S, with 3 different activities. One involved creating a solid construction using cocktail sticks and midget gems. The second activity was a word search containing different words associated with the construction industry. The third activity involved pupils looking at a diagram of the new AHS and considering which roles each members on the site had. The session ended with a visit from their ‘mascots’!
