Our trip to Stromness

We started off with a walk through Stromness looking for interesting buildings and plaques on walls to show where important events had taken place. It was like a treasure hunt!

Do you know why there are cobbles in the middle of the street?

Many famous ships stopped at Login's well to take water on board for their journey.

We stopped for a break at the cannon.

We found loads of information about John Rae at the museum. There was lots of information about arctic exploration too.

Some people were particularly interested in the model ships in the display cases!

We really enjoy dancing ninepins!

We are inventing our own Old Orkney families.

We've all got names and roles within the family.

Answering questions about our families in
