North Roe Primary School

At the whaling


Our new topic is Shetland, we were very interested in the history of whaling since so many Shetland men went to the whaling. Gibbie Fraser came into school to give us a talk about the whaling, he took in some whale teeth to show us. Below is a picture of Robbie holding one, they were heavier than we were expecting! Gibbie went to the whaling when he was 15 years old. He told us so many interesting stories about how they used to catch the whales. Thankfully the whaling stopped in time for the different species to recover. Some of us have seen Orcas around North Roe recently! 🙂
