Thursday SMUHA activities

In the morning Esther Renwick talked to P4/5/6 about how archaeologists work to find and piece together evidence to work out how people lived in the past.  I think everyone will agree that it was really interesting.  Some people even said they’d like to be archaeologists!

In the afternoon Stephen Renwick came dressed up in a costume from the past.  We had to guess who he was.  Of course he was a Viking warrior!  Then he taught us more about life in Viking times.  Everyone thought it was really fun and interesting.

What a great week of Viking learning everyone has had.  Can’t wait for the big day tomorrow!!!!!

Wednesday SMUHA activities

On Wednesday Yvonne from the museum came to visit the school.  Here are Primary 4, 5 and 6 learning about life in Viking times.

Viking artefacts

Here are Primary 4/5 making Viking longships.  Some of us took them home to finish off.


Helmets, shields and torches all finished ready for the big day!

Viking craft!

As well as having their normal art and PE lessons today Primary 4/5 enjoyed doing Viking craft with Mrs Leslie.  They made super pictures of Viking galleys.

They also did the finishing touches to their  Viking helmets today.  They gave themselves Viking warrior nicknames like:  Bobby the Brave, Magnus the Magnificent or Ava the Adventurer and wrote them in Viking Runes on their helmets.

SMUHA preparations!

What a great way to start a Monday morning in P4/5- making torches for SMUHA!

Then we had a break from SMUHA with a visit from a representative from the NSPCC to tell us about children’s rights and keeping ourselves safe.

After break we were getting into the spirit of SMUHA by learning some traditional Shetland dances with Maria Leask.  We learned the Boston Two Step, the Circasion Circle and to round if off we did the Grand March-just in case we are ever at a Shetland wedding!

To finish of our Monday here we are painting our shields for SMUHA!
