On Tuesday 17th September, two scientists from the Edinburgh Observatory came to talk to us about space and rockets. They showed us part of one of the Skylark rockets that had been designed in Edinburgh 50 years ago and had been sent into space to take UV images.
We then had an opportunity to make our own rockets. These were launched in the multi-court and some fired right out of the multi-court!
On Wednesday 4th September, Primary 7 went to Mareel. We went to see the Supa Modo, which had been brought to Shetland for Screen Play.
It is a Kenyan film about a girl called Jo. Obsessed with Jackie Chan and action films, nine-year-old Jo dreams of being a superhero, but time is not on her side. When the doctors reveal that she is terminally ill, Jo leaves the hospital and returns home to be with her mum and sister. While her mum insists that she stay inside and rest, her sister has different plans. With the entire village’s support, they decide to make dreams a reality and turn Jo into the superhero they know she is.
We really enjoyed the film and afterwards had a chance to make our own superhero masks.
Isaiah thought it was a really good film, it was really good the way everyone helped her in the film and all the village froze.
Becca said it was really different and it showed us how some people in Kenya live.
Thank you to Milly and Martin, who came with us to Mareel.
On Friday 19th April, the P7s had their final John Muir day out with Pete Richardson. It was a beautiful sunny day and so Pete decided to take us up to Eshaness to have a wild cliff adventure.
He took us down onto a cliff beach for our lunch no.1 and then anyone brave enough could shuffle down another rock face and look into an enormous cave. There were puffins on the ledges and the kittiwakes were back on their nests.
We walked back up along the cliff a little bit further and then cut inland to the Holes of Scrada and the peerie broch.
On Monday 16th we had our first Spanish lessons with Mr Harpe. It was really interesting to see how different to French Spanish sounds. We learnt some basic phrases, including greetings, and introducing ourselves and said where we live. Next week we’ll be learning the Spanish alphabet.
Our groups have all finished their topic displays and presented all their information to the rest of the class. There was some really excellent information and really imaginative ways of presenting it.
What a fantastic selection of cards we’ve been making this week for our pen pals in Cannes. We have written all about SMUHA and included photos, so that they have a really good understanding of our fire festival. Ms Scanlan thinks they will love them 💖
This afternoon we had a great time trying a few traditional French foods, that our Cannes pen pals eat. We tried baguettes, Camembert, Brie, Boursin, blue cheese, green and black olives, croissants, chocolate crepes and profiteroles .
Tryphena, Joanna, Mirrin and Faith helped to set everything out and kept everyone fed!
It was great to see lots of the class trying new foods and even enjoying them!
