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!
