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! 🙂
Yesterday was a special day, it was Pancake Day and our Teddy Bears’ Picnic day!
We made pancakes and sandwiches for our picnic. We decorated our pancakes to look like teddies. We danced with our teddies; we sanG with our teddies and we ate with our teddies. Primary 1 had a super time.
Yesterday we made pancakes to practice using measuring equipment independently – electronic scales and measuring jugs – and to show we could follow instructions successfully.
We followed a recipe in small groups and Miss Henry didn’t even need to help us! It was great practice for Secondary 1 Home Economics at the Anderson High School, which lots of us are very much looking forward to.
Each term, Primary 7N and Primary 7S are mixed into cooperative learning groups to carry out research projects. This term, we started off with some team building activities to get to know each other a little better. Groups were tasked with building a tall, stable, strong tower using only masking tape and newspapers. Here are some pictures of the building in action!
This week pupils in P4-7 have shown great stamina, competitiveness, enjoyment and super team working skills during their participation at this year’s swimming galas.
We were fortunate to secure sponsorship once again from G4S and held two exciting mornings at the pool. This term each class has received a six week block of swimming lessons and what better way to show off their progress and talents than to take part in the galas?
The P6/7 gala was extremely close and was won by house team ‘Olaf’ who beat ‘Magnus’ by only three points.
The P4/5 gala was also won by ‘Olaf’.
Thanks to Mrs Wood for organising the event and to parents/carers and family members for coming along to support the children.
