Primary 3 enjoyed a great day out at Hagbrae Farm in Gorebridge on Thursday. It is a working organic dairy farm and we were able to impress Julie the farmer with all of our knowledge from our Food and Farming topic in class. We saw lots of huge farm machinery cutting and storing the grass to make silage for the cows to eat over the winter, got to help feed some baby lambs and were very lucky to be allowed to go into the milking parlour and watch the cows being milked. We think living on a farm looks like great fun, but a lot of hard work!
Primary 1-7 enjoyed a fabulously sunny Sports Day at Meadowbank Stadium on Tuesday afternoon. Everyone enjoyed all the fun activities and then the younger classes cheered on the P4-7 pupils who braved the 100m and 400m competitive runs. Well done to everyone for taking part and a big thank you to Ms Rolland who organised it all for us, and to all the families who came along to support us.
Congratulations to Magnus, who was awarded the title of Green Ambassador of the Eco Group. Magnus has worked very hard as an enthusiastic member of the Eco group for over two years.
He has suggested many ideas that the group have taken forward and also represented the Eco group at our recent visit to North Queensferry Primary School.
Magnus was awarded with a certificate, badge, wrist band and key ring from the World Wildlife Fund.
Well done, Magnus !
