Learning together

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!

Bikeability

Ian has been helping us learn to stay safe on our bikes. The older children will be taking their Bikeability Level 1 and 2 tests later this week.

Bag the Bruck

We all went to Sandgarth Beach to bag the bruck. We found 18 bags of rubbish (bruck), loads of netting, a plastic buoy and a buried anchor. We also found lots of mermaids purses which we will try to identify and then tell the Shark Trust what we found.

Thanks to everyone who came along to help, and to Stanley and Catherine-Ann for transport.

A visit from the Coastguard

Ian and Ron came to school to tell us about the job of Coastguards. We learned how to stay safe near the sea, and what we shouldn't touch on the beach (this is especially relevant with Bag the Bruck next week). We also got to look at the Coastguard vehicle and have a go at a pretend rescue.

P7 Table Top Sale

The P7s did a fantastic job and organised a sale in the school to raise money for their Lagganlia trip and for the P4 - 6 trip to Hoy later this term. They asked people to bring in things that they no longer needed so that they could be sold, wrote to local businesses to ask them for raffle prizes and asked Parent Council to provide refreshments. When the money was counted, there was a total of £446.53, which after the deposits had been taken out left an amazing £379.03. Well done P7, and thank you to everyone who came along to support the sale.

Golf

Today Ms Spence came in to work with us on golf - it was great!

RNLI Ceilidh

The children did themselves proud once again at the RNLI Ceilidh, where children from Nursery - P7 sang and played to help raise money for the RNLI, along with other people from the island.

Well done to the winners of the latest Table Manners Challenge

Happy Easter!

Thanks to Rev Julia  who came in to talk to us about the Easter story and to Anna who came to in to talk to us about how Easter is celebrated in Poland. It was really interesting!

P1 - 3 made Easter cards using tessellating patterns.

 

 

Sport Relief

The pupils from Nursery to P7 (helped by parents, staff and community volunteers) ran at least a mile for Sports Relief. Together with the sweepstake organised by Pupil Council they have raised £589! Well done everyone!
