At Shapinsay School we understand that people learn best when they are intrinsically motivated. Children learn best when they are playing and engaged in creating challenges and learning about the world around them.
Catherine Diamond, Principal Teacher for Early Years (although learning through play is not just for the youngest children!) came out to work with staff and parents about how we can provide children with high quality play opportunities.

We went to Stromness to visit the Hamnavoe and the Pier Arts Centre. We had a great day and came back tired and happy. Thank you to the Community Council for funding our trip and to all the staff on the Hamnavoe (especially the Captains and Kasia) and to Carol at the Pier Arts Centre.

Julie Courtney came to visit our school. She comes from the Falkland Islands which we found out were a very long way away. She talked to us about what life is like there and we told her about Orkney.
