Week 4

The Primary 7s have been doing lots of work on their group presentations. They have all been continued researching and have written their scripts. There are lots of interesting facts that they have been finding out. In French we have been using more adjectives in our writing , describing cats! We have started to think about what we are doing for our Christmas video, we had lots of fun on Thursday starting to film it and coming up with ideas.

Lots of the class have been doing the JRSO daily challenges and we had a very stripy zebra day!

Have a good weekend!

Primary 7 Assembly

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!

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.
