Thursday 25th September: This morning all the Shetland probationers came to see how we use Glow and ICT to help our learning.
Monday 22nd September: This morning Karen MacKelvie, from RSPB, came to do a workshop about rockpools. She explained to us why the tide goes in and out and how plants and creatures are adapted to tidal movements. She had brought lots of creatures and plants for us to look at and then we walked down to the marina to see what we could find there. We had a brilliant morning and learned lots about the creatures that live in our locality.

We had lunch outside the museum and then went to visit RLNI Lerwick lifeboat. The crew showed us around the boat and the shore station and staged some rescues for us to see. One of the volunteers was wearing a head camera; they edited the video and sent it to us - you can see it on the children's blog. Thank you very much to them all; we had a great time!
