This morning Nathan, Grace and Hannah came to visit us. They have just moved from near Rotherham, they are going to start school on Monday.
This afternoon we did problem solving - we have bought some new bookcases but the company sent the wrong sort; instead of sending us the right ones they sent us the bits and the instructions so we could rebuild them ourselves! P5 and P7 worked really hard and got it sorted out, then we moved the last of our library books so now our new library area is finished.

Learning and Teaching Scotland are going to feature us in Connect magazine. Today they sent Billy Fox, a photographer, to take pictures of us. Whilst he was here the older ones took the opportunity to interview him about his work. Billy lives in Shetland and has taken photos for Visit Shetland and for Northlink Ferries. We know his work because he took the photos for the "Gie Us Ten Guitars" exhibition we saw at Bonhoga.
