Tuesday 29th February: Today we joined in with the 29thFeb blog; its just open for one day for people all over the world to share what they are doing on our "extra" day. We had a visit from Bruce Eunson this morning; he came to talk about Shetland dialect so P1-P3 added 29 Shetland wirds as their post and P7 added 29 things about Yell as theirs.
Thursday 23rd February: This morning the Cullivoe Jarl Squad came to visit us; they presented us with a beautiful shield to commemorate their visit. They brought their own band and sang to us!
Tuesday 21st February: Today we finished all the shields and the Jarl came to collect them ready to put on his galley.
Friday 17th February: Cullivoe Jarl squad have asked us to design and paint shields to go on their galley at Up Helly Aa. Today we started painting them; they have to be black, silver and teal which are the Jarl's colours.
Tuesday 14th February: Today we were able to present a certificate for the Glovember competition.
Friday 10th February: This morning we joined in with the Glovember story competition Glowmeet when they announced the winners. We were really pleased when they announced the short list for the youngest group because our P1 was on the list! The author Lari Don read extracts from all the shortlisted poems and stories and said that they will all be published on an ebook on Glow. All the Burravoe bairns worked very hard on the stories they entered and the judges said how high the standard of entries was so we are very proud of them all!
