This afternoon we all took part in the RSPB Schools birdwatch. Schools throughout the whole of the UK take part in this and record the birds in their school grounds.
The results are then uploaded to the RSPB and they use the information to look at changes in bird populations.
Local birdwatcher Glen Tyler took groups of children out and we used our school binoculars, that Ness Engineering and Hugh Harrop had given us last year. The children asked lots of questions as they went around the school and used Hugh’s identification guide to learn a bit more about the local birds.
Everyone said they would like to do this again.
This afternoon in Wider Achievement, Joy Duncan started to teach drumming tunes to the group, to video to take to show the children at Lomayana Primary school, when she and Ms Scanlan visit in February.
Ewan from Radio Shetland came along to interview us and find out a bit more about the project. He hopes that it will be on Radio
Shetland tomorrow evening.
Last week we practiced Shetland dances to video too.
It was lovely to see everyone back in class today and to hear about all the fun things that everyone has done over the holidays.
So here are our latest class photos of the new P5/6
