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!
On Friday the 29th of May, Primary 567 held a general election for the whole school. There were 4 political party’s. B.S.P (Better Shetland Party), SPP (Shetland People Party), S.I.P (Shetland Intelligence Party) and S.D.P (Shetland Democratic Party).
We are going to find out who won this afternoon. Our classroom was set up as a polling station and we had to try and get people to vote for us. The votes are going to be counted when were in art. We have been preparing for it for weeks. The Teachers got to vote as well.

On Tuesday the P5s started their personal projects. Lois had made hers about Foxes. Maisie started one about birds. Amy started making a poster about Jacqueline Wilson but Rebecca did not get to start because she was in London (lucky her!)

Every Wednesday, Joy comes in to do drumming with us. At the moment we are learning a dance routine to go with the drumming. We will be performing it at our end of term concert. The routine is quite easy to learn and the drumming is the easiest part to learn. Its really fun to learn as well!

On Thursday the 28th of May, we went to Whiteness School to practise for our Scottish Opera performance ‘Warriors’. We are performing it with Whiteness and Aith.
A man called Roger was going through the songs with us. He was funny and made the whole thing a lot better. I think he was quite happy with our singing (we’re the builders) especially in our part in the first song.
We only got our break at 11 o clock therefore we were ABSOLUTELY STARVING. I think the songs were quite good with all of us singing together.

On the second day of the P7 Voxter trip we hiked up a burn. A man called Steve came as our guide, he explained we were hiking up a burn, going across the top of the hill, down another burn, across a beach and back the Voxter House.
We had to get a rucksack, a helmet and a waterproof jacket (just in case it got windy or rainy).
We walked up a very steep hill and down the side of it to the burn. We had to put on our helmets then so if we fell our heads would be safe. We jumped on rocks across the burn for no practical reason just to make it fun and exciting. We took turns leading the group (anyone who wanted to) through challenging routes. Then we had to go on our own for a bit finding our own routes up the burn
When we eventually got to the top of the hill we walked across the top of it to get to the other burn, we got down to the level of the burn and FINALLY had lunch. We then carried on down the burn, just like before. When we got to the bottom we took off our helmets and walked across the beach back to Voxter to catch our bus back to school.
Overall the walk was fun or some, a bit frustrating others. But Tom, Abby and Gary would definitely do it again.
