Innerwick Fire Festival

On 31st January, we recreated Up Helly Aa. Much learning, designing and creating culminated in children, staff, parents and friends following a piper in a procession around the village.

Longboats were burned, songs sung and delicious hot soup was served before the large boat was placed on the fire.

A few of our talented pupils entertained our visitors before the end of the evening.

Many thanks to everyone for their help and support in making this event such a fantastic success.

“People who help us” Learning

The nursery children are currently learning about the people who help them in their local community. We have enjoyed a visit from PC Johnston who talked about her uniform and showed us her police car. We had thought up lots of good questions to ask her about the role she plays in helping us and other people in the community.

On our latest Learning Walk, we spoke to the local farmers and learned what they do to help us. We had lots of fun feeding turnips to the cows. They rear cows to give us beef, and also grow wheat to make into flour. Next week we will be grinding some wheat from their farm to make flour. We will then use the flour to bake scones for snack.

Please enjoy looking at some of the photos from our recent learning experiences.

We have further visits from a fire-fighter, the bin-men and the postman planned for the coming days.

Fun in the Snow!

The nursery children had so much fun playing in the snow this morning. They learned how to roll enormous snowballs to create a snowman and also enjoyed sliding down the hill on fertiliser bags.

The snow play continued back in the classroom as snow was collected and put into the water tray.

We all hope that the snow stays for a few days so we can continue to play in it.
