All the primary classes are off to the beach in their new waterproofs funded by Enquest and the PSA. The are investigating making music outdoors using different natural materials. This is our December challenge in our new Outdoor Learning policy.
Chris Lewis, and Jet the dog, came to visit and tell us all about their journey and why they are in Shetland. We had great fun speaking to them and asked lots of questions and told LOTS of stories!!!!
They are walking the coastline of the UK to raise money for, and awareness of, SSAFA. This is the charity that provides lifelong support to serving men, women and veterans from the British Armed Forces and their families or dependents. SSAFA stands for Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association, Chris used to be a paratrooper!!!!!
So if you come across Chris and Jet on their travels, please say hi, maybe donate money to their charity (if you are able to do so) and offer them a cuppa. They love to meet new people and find out about all the different areas that they are visiting. If you’d like to follow their story then you can find them on Chris Walks the UK on facebook.
On Friday the 27th of September, 2 firefighters from Hillswick came to visit our school. Their names were Toby and Jeff.
They spoke to us about how they help us and we saw their fire engine and some of the equipment that they use.
We liked the big cutters and the really loud sirens. The fire engine was cool!!!
We even got to try on a jacket, helmet and gloves. The nursery and big class came out to see them as well.
Miss Laurenson was allowed to use the walkie-talkie and she got Cassie to go outside and slide down the fireman’s pole.
We said thank you very much to Toby and Jeff for coming in to visit us.
