Today we finally had our musical instrument contest. The criteria was to make an instrument that was creative and could play a recognisable tune. The children have been working on this for a few weeks and there was a fantastic range of ideas.
After a lot of hard decision-making Ms Scanlan thought that Fearne had made an instrument that played the best tune and Fiona, Hannah and Eveline and Isla and Kathryn’s groups had included the most creative ideas. Mrs Henderson came in to see them all and we both thought that everyone had worked really well on the task. (2 votes, average: 1.00 out of 1) Loading...
It has been another busy week. We have completed our map skills project and on Friday made up our own maps, which we’ll put up on the wall for display. We have been continuing our South Mainland topic (see Hayden’s lovely drawing)and in music Mrs Inkster has been teaching us the Unst boat song, which is sounding really lovely. In drama Izzy Swanson has been working on some south mainland stories with us. We spent all Friday afternoon doing the Voar Redd Up – thank you to Michelle for coming out with us. There was lots of rubbish, especially plastics to collect, but we also found a few mermaid’s purses, a rat (!) and Liam found an enormous sea slater.
This afternoon, we had our first Christmas concert and P7 were fantastic. Well done to everyone and especially to Mrs Inkster for all her help. The class started with Merry Christmas Eveyone. The instrumentalists played beautifully and the singers were superb. Then everyone sang Little Drummer Boy, Issac sang a solo, while Hannah played the keyboard. It all sounded wonderful.
