Neolithic Tools

Louise came in to show us how Neolithic (New Stone Age) people made tools. It was really interesting, thank you Louise!

World Book Day

We made scenes from books that we like. Everyone worked together really well and thanks to the parents who came in to help us. The finished scenes are great and are now on display for everyone to admire.

The finished work!


Mark has been coming to help all the children play rugby, from Nursery to P7. We've all enjoyed it a lot!


Classroom work

Shapinsay School will soon look very different (well, the classrooms will anyway!). P1 - 3 and P4 - 7 rooms are now completely empty and soon will be looking great. All 3 classrooms are also getting new flooring. We will post more photos when it's done!

Lifeboat Ceilidh

Well done to all the children who performed brilliantly at the Lifeboat Ceilidh on Saturday 1st February. Everyone was really impressed with your singing and your dancing!

Burns Lunch

Today we had Burns Lunch with the Lunch Club. The P4 - P7 children performed brilliantly, well done!


P1 - P7 are all learning about history this term (P1 - 3 are learning about Ancient Egypt and P4 - 7 are learning about World War 2). Caroline Wickham-Jones is an archaeologist in Orkney and she came to talk to us about being an archaeologist. We all learned lots and it was really interesting to handle the tools and replica artefacts Caroline brought in.


Catherine Johnson from Active Schools came on Wednesday 22nd January and P1 - P7 all had a go at Boccia. It was good fun!


We have been learning dancing for the ceilidh on 1st February
