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.

 

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.

Jigsaw health and wellbeing

Since Term 1 the whole school has been using the new Jigsaw resources to learn about lots of health and wellbeing issues and practices.

This week in groups of 4 we had to complete tasks, involving all group members, but one couldn’t get out of their seat, one couldn’t see, another couldn’t hear and one had their hand behind their back. We thought about how we can enable everyone to join in and contribute.

The Curse of the Were Rabbit – Nick Park

On Friday the 31st of August Primary 6/7 went to see The Curse of the Were Rabbit at Mareel and 6/7 got to speak to Nick Park the director of the film. The genre of the film is comedy and it was made in 2005. The film is about a town holding a  giant vegetable  competition and Wallace and Gromit’s  business “Anti – Pesto” is going splendidly well but there is a pest going round and eating all of the vegetables. A man called Victor Quartermaine plans to kill the beast and earn an award, or better marry the rich Lady Tottington. We really enjoyed the film.
