Graduation! (Goodbye P7 boys!)

On 03/07/19 we had a graduation ceremony! The 2 people who are leaving are Aaron Painter (Me) and Jack Sumner! There were 3 videos and 2 power points. When we had done 1 of the power points and the 3 videos we did a mini graduation ceremony (Mr Thompson gave out some certificates to Me, Darcy and Jack and then gifts for the Anderson to me and Jack. ) After that we watched a load of Edinburgh Trip photo’s in a slide show! My favorite gift was a shirt he gave us that had somebody jumping into water. (Our school badge with a stick man on it.) -Aaron P7

My favorite item that I got was the alarm clock so that we can get to school on time.-Jack P7

It was a really good Graduation ceremony!

Soup and Bannocks

Today we held a soup and bannocks day at the school. We held it to get some of the community of Fetlar together to enjoy some soup and bannocks. Although it was a first time for making soup, we enjoyed it, a few of the things they made were scones, bannocks, and lentil soup. All of the guests enjoyed their food and at the end of the day we managed to raise £80.

Red Nose Day

Red Nose Day is a day when people go to school or work wearing a red nose. Red Nose Day was invented in 1985 by a group of people called Comic Relief to raise money to tackle the root of poverty and social injustice. To tackle the roots they raise around £1,000,000 by holding 2 events called Red Nose Day and Sport Relief.
We at Fetlar Primary School held our Red Nose Day on Monday 18th March. We started it by giving out sheets of paper to whoever came so they could answer the general knowledge quiz that was on it. After everyone had done the quiz we announced that the winner would get a special prize. Then a few people had their face painted by one of our students. We decided to paint faces and noses so we don’t use as much plastic. Whilst that was happening other people were having a go at the bean bag throw (which also had a special prize.)
After all of the fun happened we counted how much we raised and we managed to raise £32.00. We sent all of the money to Comic Relief and the £32.00 we raised was raised only by a few people! The prizes were a chocolate bar for the winner of the quiz and for the winner of the bean bag throw they won a chocolate bar also, second place won some sticky notes.

Belated Pancakes!


We made drop scones and pancakes. They were delicious. Nursery wrote the recipe for us and we followed it exactly! The P7 boys decided they would like to practice their culinary skills more often!

Holocaust Memorial Day

Yesterday was Holocaust Memorial Day around the world when we can think about others who suffered very badly because of prejudice.  We found out about Anne Frank who was a young girl who went in to hiding because some bad people wanted to hurt her because she was Jewish.

We should remember so we don’t let things happen like this again.  We found out that Anne had no rights of the child and this is why it’s good for us to have them.

 

Burns lunch at Fetlar

We had fun today at Fetlar eating haggis, totties and neeps and some shortbread biscuits that the younger children made.  We sang songs and read some of Burn’s poems,’Address to a Haggis’ and ‘My love is like a red, red rose’.  After that we read our Toast to the lasses which worked out alright then the Reply to the Laddies.  Finally we tucked into our tasty lunch.  Happy Burn’s Night

Weather and landscape in Unst

We had an adventure getting into Baltasound Junior High School today for our weekly visit.  Unexpected snow showers across the northern isles presented us with some challenges getting into Unst.  However, we are here and thought we would share some pictures from our journey.

Martin Luther King Day

Monday 21st January was Martin Luther King day, a federal holiday in the United States of America where Mr King came from.  We found out about him and how brave he was.  We discussed how we would feel if we had to be kept separated from our friends because of colour, gender or faith as examples. Then we wrote about an experience we have had in the past which needed qualities that Dr King had like encouragement, strength and motivation. We then linked that example and Dr Kings example to our Children’s articles of rights.  Our P7 children thought among others that Article 29 – Using education to be the best you can and to live peacefully and Article 12 – Every child has a right to have a say in all matters affecting them.
