Monday 21st December: Today all schools in Shetland are closed because of the weather conditions. We have snow and more forecast.
Tuesday 15th December: Today we joined, with other schools in Scotland, in a Glowmeet with the author Nick Hesketh. We had already watched his workshop about punctuating dialogue and had the chance to try his challenge and share it with him on Glow. Nick read out Elouise's and Lucy's work so we were all very pleased. Ms Anderson came to join us for the morning so she could see first hand what great opportunities Glow gives us.
Thursday 10th December: This afternoon, when we went to the Leisure Centre, Mr Williamson had arranged for Maria Leask to come and do some traditional dance with everyone.
Monday 7th December: This week Lisa Smith, an S6 pupils from Anderson High School, is coming to do work experience with us; she is planning to go to University next year and wants to be a primary teacher.
Friday 4th December: This afternoon we had a Glowmeet with Brian McLaren from LTS Consolarium so we could talk to him about the work we have done based on the Wii game, Wild Earth African Safari. We showed him our collage, told him about out role play area and Charlotte read him her brilliant story for which he drew her a star. We are going to send him some more of our safari stories. You can read about it on the Consolarium blog.
