Relative size of the planets

We are learning about Space, and we used playdough to show the relative size of the planets. We invited the younger class in to see.

More handbells

Miss Clements was really impressed today - we played this! (This is only only our 3rd run through - we can sight read!)



We have been making circuits, and we made some games for P1 - 3 to come and try.

We even made a trip wire that set off an alarm!


We have been learning to play handbells - here we are in action!



This term P4 - 7 are learning about electricity. They have designed and made their own torches.

Celia's diary of the trip





A trip to the Bird Hide

We went to visit the Bird Hide at the Mill Dam in Shapinsay with Paul, the RSPB warden.

College trip

We had a trip to the Orkney College to have a tour of the college and learn more about Archaeology.

Thank you very much to the people at Orkney College who helped us have a great day out!

Paper mache creations

We designed them on paper first, then we made the shape from junk, like cardboard boxes and old newspapers. We then covered it newspaper dipped in wallpaper paste, then painted them. This process took a few weeks as we had to wait for each layer to dry before we could add the new layer.  


Here are the finished models.
