Thursday 30th June: Today is the last day of term. We start back on Wednesday August 17th.
Wednesday 29th June: Today we went on a long trip to the South Mainland. We were meant to catch the 7.45am ferry but it had broken down so we had to wait but, that meant we were very lucky, we saw a pod of orcas swimming in Yell Sound! We went to Sumburgh Head for a workshop with the RSPB.

We finished the day at Frankie's fish and chips. We were too busy eating to take photos! We got back to school at 7.30 so it was a long day! We would like to thank the Cullivoe Jarl Squad as we used the money they gave us to pay for our day out.
Monday 27th June: Today P6 went to Lerwick as part of the Yell team competing in the County Sports. In the evening we had our end of year event when parents and friends could come and see and hear some of the things we have been doing this year.

In the afternoon it was the launch of the Inuksuit project at The Old Haa that we have been part of - the weather was beautiful and lots of people came to the party. We joined with other Yell bairns and sang some songs in Inuit. Some of the older ones sold the booklets about the project that they helped to write and were interviewed by Radio Shetland. We would like to thank Mike McDonnell for giving us so much help and support.

Wednesday 1st June: Today we had a lovely surprise! The Cullivoe Jarl Squad gave us a cheque for £500 to spend as we wish! They raised money during Up Helly Aa week and have decided to give it to all the schools and to Peerie Breeks. We would like to say a huge thank you for their very generous gift. We'll post what we decide to spend it on!
