This afternoon while the P6s were doing Bikeability, the P7s did a fantastic job of cleaning out the pond. It had become really overgrown. Now there is lots of room again for the frogs and next year’s frogspawn 🐸
Ethan threw himself in to the task “It was really fun, especially going in.”
Anders said “ I really enjoyed it, we cleared out half of the pond.”
Hannah said “It was fun and it was really messy.”
Fiona said “It was fun because I didn’t get wet!”
Lena liked it because she got a wet bum!
Roma liked it because it was stinky.
Esther thought that it was fun to clear it out but it was stinky though!
Isla thought it was fun to make a huge pile of the vegetation from the pond.
Elijah thought the weeds were quite tasty…not really!!!
On Friday 10th September the P7s and Ms Scanlan had a rocky adventure with Rob at Scatness. Everyone challenged themselves with a look over the high cliffs, explored the rocky beach, searched for (and found – thank you Leighton) the geo cache, explored the Iron Age building, walked across the land bridge (without using our hands!), had a mindful moment and finally went on a rock hunt. We even tried a bit of sea lettuce!
As always we had a great day – thank you to Rob – and we’re looking forward to the next one already 🙂
Today the second half of the class had their John Muir adventure. We went to Scatness and had another rocky adventure. The weather was fantastic and we had a great day. A big thank you to Rob, for all the fun.
This Wednesday and Thursday we went on two John Muir days. The class went in two groups but both groups went to Garth’s Ness.
Ellie: I really enjoyed my John Muir day on Wednesday. My favourite bit was when we all crawled through a tunnel in the rocks. I really really want to go again!
Kayla: I loved the John Muir day. My favourite bit was after lunch when we were playing on the boulders and making out the floor is lava courses. I would love to go again!
Matthew: I loved the John Muir day so much, especially when I got to go in a cave! it was my highlight of my week. I would love to go again.
Koll: John Muir day was really fun, my favourite part was when we got to go through the cave. I would really like to go on John Muir again.
Fergus: I really enjoyed John Muir day, everything was very exciting. My favourite part was climbing around at all of the boulders. If I could then I would definitely go on a John Muir trip again!
Tory: One Wednesday I went on my John Muir, it was so fun because we went rock climbing. My favourite part was when we went to the Garth ness eye when Koll and I went through the cave their, I hope we can go on another John Muir soon!
Kelsi: I really enjoyed doing John Muir, it was very fun doing something you wouldn’t normally do and pushing yourself to do it. My favourite part was got to the Garths Ness eye, it was a really beautiful place to go, I hope we will be able to go on another John Muir soon!
Hayden: I loved doing John Muir and going to the caves.
What a busy week we have had again. Finishing off all our owl pellet work. We have also been finding out about more food chains and webs, planting more trees, drawing and painting barn owls and finally listening to a fantastic performance in the hall this afternoon.
What a lovely term we have had and what a great class the P7s are.
What a lovely first full week back. It has been great to see everyone again and we have done so much this week and had lots of fun.
After seeing all the frogs around the pond we have been drawing / making and talking about animals in French. This afternoon we had a look at all the tree species and have been classifying and identifying them all for our Biodiversity topic.
What a lovely afternoon we had today, exploring the tree and pond areas, trying to find as many species as we could and then finding more frogs than we could have imagined! Everyone was very engaged and we all enjoyed the afternoon.
This afternoon Primary 7 did something a little bit different for their assembly / show of learning. They split into four groups to explain about all the things that they were finding out about in Block 1. Each group split into two teams to make display boards and explain all about Pneumatics, Electricity, Enterprise and John Muir. The school split into their Focus Friday groups and parents joined the teams to visit each of the four workshops.
Toby did a fantastic job of timekeeping to keep us all on track, and everyone seemed to find their way from group to group.
After that, Primary 7 played a short piece from the beginning of their Radio Scotland Junior Historians show, that they made in the autumn. And finally Drew played a ‘Thank you for listening’ film that he had made using his drone.
The Primary 7s really enjoyed doing their assembly like this and said that it was a lot more fun and they enjoyed speaking to smaller groups and doing lots of activities. Ms Scanlan was very proud of all of them and hopes that the audience were too. Well done P7s!
So here they are, the wonderful, fun loving new P6/7s Just another blogs.glowscotland.org.uk – Shetland site
