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.

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!

Tuesday 7th February: Today is Safer Internet Day so we reminded ourselves about the dos and don'ts when we are using the internet. We used resources from thinkuknow ; there are lots of resources for parents/carers to see and use here to help ensure their children stay safe.
Friday 3rd February: We have been collecting old plastic bottles to re-use as bird feeders. This afternoon we worked in pairs to make them. We put 2 out and kept the others to replace them when they get damaged by the wind which we know might happen!
