Da Voar Redd Up

On the 27th of April P7 did Da Voar Redd Up!

We walked to the end of the Tingwall road and back.

We found a chocolate box, lots of plastic and glass bottles, a car wheel, a dog poop bag with poop in it, cans, 3 hedgehogs, sweetie wrappers and lots more.

Over all we collected 3 bags of bruck.

Blytheswood Shoebox Appeal

Over the last term our whole class have been organising the Blytheswood Shoebox Appeal to help people who don’t get presents on Christmas Day.

First we sent a letter home to tell pupils and parents that they could donate empty shoeboxes, items to go inside the boxes, donations of £2.50 or complete shoeboxes.

In the end we got 37 boxes altogether and raised £42.50.  We went to the Whiteness Shop to drop off all the boxes so they can send them away to the children. 

Tingwall pupils and parents were very generous and we hope the children really enjoy opening our shoebox presents.  We will be thinking of them when we open our presents on Christmas Day.

The Scottish Opera – Warriors

On Wednesday the 10th of June P567 went to Whiteness Primary for the Scottish Opera ‘Warriors’ performance. We did the performance with Whiteness and Aith. We were the Builders, Aith were the Peasants and Whiteness were the Soldiers. There were three adult parts in the Opera, they all were in charge of a certain group. Dan Of Yan was played by Steven, he was leader of the Peasants. Michelle was Zhang Han, leader of us (the builders) and Jamie was the Emperor Qin, in charge of the Soldiers.

It turned out really good and we would do it again if we got the chance.

Douze oot!!

On Tuesday we played a game called Douze Oot which means you’re out in Shetland dialect and also 12 in french (douze). The way you play it is you stand in a circle, then you have to count in French from 1 to 12 and is you say Douze your out but you can say up to 3 numbers in a row to get some one out, the last one standing wins

It can get intense and funny!

And the winner is….

Today we held our Election for the Shetland Parliament. Every party has worked very hard with their campaign: creating  brilliant logos, lovely rosettes, informative manifestos and presenting excellent speeches!

We set up a small Polling Station in our class for the voting to take place. Our Event Coordinators collected Poll Cards, marked people off the Electoral Register and handed out Ballot Papers.

We were all reminded to put a cross beside who we wanted to vote for!

The results of our election were as follows:

BSP – 20 votes

SDP – 18 votes

SIP – 21 votes

SPP – 18 votes

It was a very close election! Well done to all parties as they all worked very hard!
