Thursday 27th February: This morning we were very excited when the Cullivoe Jarl Squad came to visit us as part of Up Helly Aa celebrations. They presented us with a shield. You can read more about the visit and see a video on the children's blog.

Wednesday 26th February: This afternoon we baked the recipe we had decided to enter for the Game on Scotland Culinary Challenge. We decided to make a recipe which people in Brunei Darussalem might like; Brunei are one of Shetland's second teams to support for the Commonwealth Games 2014. We researched what they might eat and what they might be able to grow. We chose to make a spicy haddock dish with rice and a salad. We bought some locally caught haddock and thought that linked well with our Food for Thought Project as well. We worked in groups and then voted for the dish we thought looked best; we photographed it for the competition and then we ate the food - very delicious!

Wednesday 19th February: It was a lovely afternoon so we went to the beach to collect some sea to send to Tania Kovats' Oceans exhibition which is going to be on at the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh.

Whilst we were there we also looked for things on the seashore which will help us with the biodiversity part of our Food for Thought project.

We had a lot of fun too!

Tuesday 4th February: This morning we did the RSPB Big Schools Bird Watch. We practised tallying and then sat by the window and counted. We saw all the varieties which we expected but not as many birds as we sometimes see - the weather wasn't very good but we have got fed up waiting for a good day to do it! We entered all the data into either xls or j2e graphing and made different types of graphs.

This afternoon Madame Boullay brought us a galette des rois which she had baked herself. She told us about when it is eaten in France and the traditions around it. The youngest person sits under the table to choose who eats which slice. The person who finds the lucky token becomes the king or queen and can choose a partner. Thank you Madame Boulay; it was delicious!
