This week we have been listening to and interviewing invited guests for the Glaitness Herald.
Looking back at a copy of The Orkney Herald for 1919 - it was a very different kind of newspaper. There were no pictures and no real headlines.
The biggest print on the front page was an advertisement for SEA BOOTS!
Our first visitor was Scottish Champion Powerlifter Ruth Pottinger.
We found out about the different types of lifting that happen in a competition and did some maths with her. We also found out about what it takes to achieve your goals.
More to come in our class newspaper...
We also wanted to find out about the proposed Broad Street development so we asked a planner from the Council, Michael Harvey, and Councillor Leslie Manson in to our class.
We learned a lot about how the council works and how developments like this happen.
We had lots of good ideas ourselves for making the street better.
We are looking forward to writing our own reports and sharing them in our own newspaper. We will share more of the topics we research as we find out about them here.
