SMUHA WEEK

What a fantastic week we had last week.

Mrs Henderson had organised a busy week of activities including a visit from the NSPCC, Traditional dance with Maria Leask, a museum visit and activities with Stephen and Esther Renwick and Art and craft with Mrs Leslie. There were also lots of SMUHA activities including making the programme, key rings, home bakes and making sure that all the squads were ready.

Shane (Bjorn Ironsides) and his P7 squad led the procession and we were so lucky with the weather. We had a great time in the Boddam hall, with all the entertainments and the visit from the SMUHA squad.

RSPB Birdwatch

On Friday 1st February, Glen Tyler came to school to help us with our RSPB birdwatch. He took everyone out in small groups and we used the binoculars that Hugh Harrop and Ness Engineering have bought us.

We saw lots of starlings, house sparrows, a hooded crow, 2 herring gulls and a blackbird. The birds have enjoyed the seeds that we’ve been putting outside in all this cold weather.

On Monday 4th February our P6s (expert birdwatchers!) paired up with the Nursery bairns to help them complete their birdwatch.

Isaac “It was good fun and the nursery listened well.”

Cole “We helped the nursery go through all the bushes, so that they didn’t get hurt and it was good fun.”

Robert “It was really fun and they were so cute.”

Mirrin “It was really good and I was surprised at how well they listened and how many birds they knew.”

Kenyan Penpals

During the October holidays Ms Scanlan received an email from Lomayana school, full of wonderful messages and pictures for the class. It is always lovely to see the beautiful designs and drawings that they send and it’s great to hear back from them all and see how they are getting on.

Here is a photo of the class with their messages.

P7 Leavers Assembly

On Friday afternoon we did our final assembly. We each showed some of our special talents. Some people played musical instruments or sang a song and others showed a video of their skills. The P6s did a little presentation to say goodbye to us! At the end we preformed a song that a group of people wrote especially for the assembly called ‘As The Years Go By.’ Then Mrs Henderson and Mrs Hay gave us a little present, it was a great way to say goodbye! We all had a really good afternoon. By Emily and Eve

Here are some photos from our assembly.

Even some parents were given leaving certificates!
