STEM 3

Today is our final STEM session.

We started off by doing a sort activity about different types of energy.

Then we made a solar and wind farm.

Robert Leask really enjoyed making the power sources with Toby, Roman and Daniel.

Faith said “ It was really good fun to see how many volts our model generated – it was 4 volts!”

Isaac said “I liked fiddling around with all the little pieces. “

Mia especially enjoyed building the wind turbines.

 

John Muir Day 2

On Friday 1st November, we had a great day exploring Kergord forest. Pete and John picked us up in minibuses and gave us waterproof clothes and rucksacks. We ran up across the field and into the woods. The first thing that we did was to sit still and listen to all the sounds around us.

After that John led us in a snake, under, over,  along and across the wood. We walked across the stream on logs and climbed up and through trees.

We went up to the house to have our lunch and then spend a while in groups making dens.

We went back up to the house to find out about fire making and then looked at everyone’s dens on the way down.

We really enjoyed all the activities and everyone put 100% effort into the day 🙂

BBC Radio Scotland Junior Historians

What a great day we are having, with Rhona Brudenell from BBC Scotland and Davie Gardner from Radio Shetland making a Junior Historian radio programme, about the Braer.

We are having lots of visitors in to talk to us and we have learned all about the Braer disaster. We have been learning how to ask good questions to find out the most interesting information.

The visitors today were Jonathan Wills, Helen Moncreiff, Jim Budge, Sheila Fowlie and Mary Blance.

Carla – It has been really good fun, we have learnt a lot.

Becca – It’s quite nerve racking peaking into a microphone.

Isaiah – I have really enjoyed listening to their stories, it’s been fun learning, like a treat!

Hari-Lou – It’s a bit odd, but exciting.

Robert B – I’m really looking forward to hearing it on the radio.

 

Rockets

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!

Supa Modo

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.
