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.
Wednesday 17th September: This afternoon we made props and backdrops for our pirate play.
Friday 12th September: This morning we watched a special Glow meet with Debi Gliori. It was organised for Shetland and Orkney Schools by the 2 island library services as part of the event 24 islands/24 hours. She talked to us about how she gets ideas for her books, read us her new book, gave us some drawing tiops and then answered our questions.
In the afternoon we based our artwork on the illustration styles of the 2 author/illustrators we have met this week.
Thursday 11th September: This morning we watched Authors Live with Jon Klassen (you can watch the highlights if you click the link).

Saturday 6th September: We were very pleased to win some prizes for our veg at the Yell Show.
Friday 5th September: Today we starting harvesting some things from our garden so we could enter them for Yell Show. Some of our veg haven't done very well but we entered them anyway to see how we'll get on!

P1/2/3 in Shetland Museum
P4-7 at Mareel
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!
