Reception Class are learning all about Farms this term. They enjoyed fixing the Farmer’s tractor and also found out that the cereals they eat in the morning are grown in the farmer’s fields! They had lots of fun crunching them all up!

 

Primary 3 and Primary 4 had a wonderful trip yesterday to the Potteries Museum in Hanley. Primary 3 took part in an archaeological dig, to find out about how people lived in the Stone Age whilst Primary 4 were lucky enough to be shown Ancient Greek pots that were over 2000 years old. They felt very special in being able to see these primary sources for themselves. This enabled the children to see how historians have been able to record so much information about the past.

A fun day out for all the children!
