Thursday 29th May: Today, Caron connected us to broadband! This morning the Nursery came to visit us; we were very pleased to see them. We also had a visitor from Crosthwaite School in Cumbria who wanted to take a picture of an island school so that she could show her class when she got home.
Wednesday 28th May: This morning we took our volcanoes outside and put a mixture of vinegar and bicarbonate of soda in them; we added some red food dye and some red glitter for extra effect. We had some spectacular eruptions and a lot of fun!

This week is walk to school week. Some of us can't walk to school because we come on school transport so we decided to go for a walk in Burravoe instead. First we went to the Old Haa to look at some of their artefacts about early settlers in New Zealand, then we went to see the new path and gates in the garden. It was such a lovely day that we decided to go for a coastal walk; we got back just in time for lunch.

Monday 19th May: Ms Leask came to visit us at school today and stayed for lunch. We are sorry that she is leaving at the end of term. Today P6 went to the leisure centre at Mid Yell to see the Baldy Bane Theatre Company do a drama about everyone keeping safe on the roads; they are now reminding everyone about speed limits!
Wednesday 14th May: It is important that we eat as many fruit and vegetables as we can; today Jennifer organised a fruit kebab making workshop as a way of trying new fruits.

Friday 9th May: The weather has been beautiful all week but we have been too busy to do any gardening so we thought it was about time we planted our tatties; we planted some sunflower seeds as well.

Thursday 8th May: Today was Miss Morrison's last day with us; we have really enjoyed having her! In the morning, Jennifer took P6 to see the Pyramid Theatre Company doing an anti smoking drama. The rest of us went to see the new Shetland pony foal that has been born in Burravoe - he doesn't have a name yet. We met Jesamine feeding them and she told us all about the ponies.

In the afternoon the children who will be starting as P1 next year came for their first visit; they joined in with music making with Andy.
Tuesday 6th May: Today Jennifer took P6 to Brae to play football and netball with puils from Yell, Unst and Northmavine schools; they had a good day and we are all very proud of how well they behaved. In the morning the rest of us went over to St Magnus' Kirk to have a look at everything inside.

Monday 5th May: Today we had a very exciting morning! We went out in Dunter 3 with Jonathan Wills to see the birds and animals that live on our cliffs and under our sea. We saw colonies of kittiwakes, fulmers and herring gulls on the cliffs. The boat has an underwater camera and we could watch some fascinating wildlife on the screen. We shared the day with Cullivoe School so we were very pleased that they could come and have lunch with us.
