Lewis and Helen came to visit us today, and helped us to learn about the science of music, and about how our brains work.
We made up dances to help us learn new things.
We learned how sound is made.
We learned about our brains (don't worry; this is only a model!)
We learned that neurons pass messages in our brains.
We all enjoyed it - thanks to Lewis and Helen for coming to work with us!

We have been enjoying the new area at the front of school. Nursery children and P1 - 3 have doors straight from their classrooms, but the big class get to use the new area for some playtimes too.

Another fine Shapinsay School tradition was upheld with the annual P7 soaking. This year the staff and parents did a lot of bluffing to convince the children the soaking was happening on Thursday - and then we surprised them on Wednesday! We tricked them by taking everyone out for PE, sending the P7s off to get the equipment while the rest of the children, staff and parents waited outside with water balloon, water pistols and the hose!
P7s, thank you for being such good sports!

Shapinsay is the place to watch because of developments using hydrogen to store and use energy. You can find out more about it on the Shapinsay Development Trust Page - click here.
Arcola energy came in to explain how it works and we had a go at making lego cars powered by hydrogen - we all really enjoyed it and learned lots!

P1 - 7 children worked in groups to make a model habitat, linking the learning of the older class on plants with the younger class's work on animals. The children had to work in their groups to plan their model, research the animals and plants, create a food chain found within their habitats and explain how the plants and animals were adapted to their habitat. All the children did really well, well done!
