This afternoon the weather was nice so we thought it was a good time to do a bit of gardening. We refilled some of our big pots and planted some potatoes in them and we cleaned up the big bed in front of the school ready for planting.

Thursday 24th April: This morning we went to Mid Yell for a science morning - it was based around a rocks workshop with Peter and Marjory Craig from Aberdeenshire. P6 had a long workshop; the younger ones had a taster session and then spent the rest of the morning trying different science activities. We made rockets with Mr Lawson which shot metres into the air! Thank you to Mr Lawson for organising the morning which was logistically challenging!
Tuesday 22nd April: We had a busy day today! This morning Paul Smyth and Elsie Young from the national Glow team came to see what we had been doing with Glow. They interviewed us on video so that they can show other people how impressed they were with us. Afterwards, Paul showed us some more tools we can use.
This afternoon we had a visit from Ydance. Unfortunately, they got stuck in Unst because of the problems with the ferries so they were a bit late but Marina took along our knitting so we did that in the hall whilst we waited!

Monday 21st April: Today Miss Morrison brought in her clarinet and showed us how it makes a sound. Nearly everyone had a try at blowing a note. The peeries ones were better at it than the big ones! At the end of the day she played a duet with Miss Wiseman, our piano instructor. We were very impressed as they had never met each other before and didn't even need a run through!

Thursday 17th April:This morning Ms Breyley went to visit the Nursery so Mrs Lewis came in to teach. She did art with us, we did observational drawing as this fits well with our work on light.

Wednesday 16th April: This term we are thinking about light in our Science lessons. Today the weather forecast was good for the whole day so we decided it was a good day to see how our shadows changed during the day. We went out at the start, middle and end of the day and measured the length of our shadows as well as checking where they were on the playground.

Every year, Shetland Amenity Trust organises Voar Redd Up (Spring clear up). Communities get involved in clearing the beaches and roadsides etc of all the bruck (rubbish) that has collected over the winter. This evening Burravoe Youth Club cleared the area around Burravoe; the weather was still beautiful which made it much more fun! At the start Elsie handed out bags and gloves and gave the younger ones hi visibility vests as we were by the road. We left our full bags of rubbish by the road side and David came along with his trailer to take them to the skip.
