We have been learning how to be computer programmers. We really enjoyed it and can't wait to do more! We managed to give the computer the right instructions to make it do what we wanted it to do.
Some of it was hard but it was great when we succeeded!

We have been finding out about David Balfour. We are making our role play area into David Balfour's house which means we need to find out about how the Victorians lived. We made tiles for the fireplace in Art and Ian helped us make the fireplace itself.

Our new topic is David Balfour. He was very important in Shapinsay and we want to find out why. We have talked about what we already know and what we would like to find out. Hopefully we can visit Balfour Castle and other important places.
Some of us have been trying to draw Balfour Castle accurately.
We want to make models of some of the farms in Shapinsay. We made a plan to help us.
We have decided to try to make our role play area into a room from David Balfour's time. He lived in Victorian times. Ian is helping us make the fire place.
