In 2014 we made a film called Planet Plastic. It was about people throwing rubbish away. We wanted to make the film to encourage people to take their litter with them and not to leave it on the beach. I am very proud of it. All the sounds were made by us using rubbish from the beach. Planet Plastic was part of our attempt to get our 4th Green Flag. We were helped by Ben and Camille. Watch our amazing film below!

A little while before Christmas, the school organised a ceilidh at the hall. Maisie and I were very brave, because each of us shared one of our special talents. Maisie played Fairy Lullaby on the whistle. She was very good! I sang a Gaelic song called I Am Tired of Picking Bracken All Day Long. After I sang the song everybody clapped, and my cheeks went very red. To close the show, we performed a play called The Star Watcher’s Journey.

Our amazing play!
I like Art and I am good at it. We have been painting blocks, lines, houses, balloons, birds, fishes, trees and butterflies. We have made purple from blue and red; orange using red and yellow and green using yellow and blue.
It was only me in school today! Everyone left on the boat at lunch. Except for me! Because it was a sunny day we were going to walk all the way to the Orchard to prune out trees! It was very sunny and was seeming to work out fine. But when we got there, Neil who was going to be helping us said we wouldn’t be able to prune them because if there is a clear sky in winter, it means it’s going to be frosty. And if it’s frosty and you prune a tree then it will do exactly the opposite of what you want it to. It will stop it growing! And guess what, there was a clear sky. Instead we put a stake in next to one of the trees that was falling over as it’s old stake had rotted. Rosy and Hamish the dogs helped too!
But instead of taking 1 hour it only took 5 minutes! So we went to the pier and got a fizzy drink instead! Then we went back to school and I began to blog this. It is about 10 past 3 now and i have started blogging about this!
