P6 Plant Up

P6 have been having a great time today continuing the project with Love Gorgie Farm.

Today’s step was to learn about how food is planted from seedlings with P6 creating window boxes.

The class learned about all the equipment needed and about compost.

Most of all they got their hands dirty!

Well done P6 and thanks to the helpers from Love Gorgie.

P4a put the B in Building

P4a welcomed Laura Bains from Bowmer and Kirkland construction and development.  The pupils learnt about the different jobs and skills that are incorporated in building development.  They considered health and safety while working on a building site and how to dress for the different roles.  Many pupils were inspired to consider careers they previously were unaware were available to them.
