Our new compost bin arrived so today we put it together and decided the best place to put it in the garden. We are going to put in some of the waste from fruit time and also some of our waste paper. We hope we can use the compost to improve the soil in the raised bed.
Burravoe Hall is having a wind generator built to provide enough electricity to heat the Hall. We walked along to have a look at them building it.

In technology this term, we are trying new healthy recipes; if we find things we like Elsie, our cook, will add them to the menu. This week we made smoothies, we made a jug of raspberry and nectarine and one of banana and kiwi smoothie. Most people liked the banana and kiwi one best.
This is James' drawing and writing about Smoothies.

Today the weather was lovely so this morning we walked to the Old Haa to see the new art exhibition and to look at the crofting artifacts. The wooden baby's cradle is over 100 years old and belonged to one of the children's family. The straw baskets are called kishies, people carried them on their backs. They were used to carry heavy loads including bringing peats from the hill. There were also larger ones which would have been carried by Shetland ponies.
Afterwards we went to look at the Old Haa garden; we were lucky to see butterflies, including a Red Admiral.
At lunchtime we were playing on our bikes. We had to make a detour on the one way system as the zebra crossing needed some maintenance.

Today we went to Mid Yell School for Activity Day. Everyone tried something different. Some of us made rockets, some clay tiles, some masks. Some of the older ones tried a new foreign language. In the afternoon we went to the Leisure Centre; we had the inflatable in the pool and the bouncy castle and football in the hall. It was a good day!
