September 2018


Primary 4 have enjoyed two sessions with RHET (Royal Highland Education Trust). We learned about crops with Fiona Jamieson and Hazel Crichton. Grinding the wheat took a lot of effort to produce flour and we now know all about the cereals - wheat, oats and barley. During the second session we welcomed Mr Fleming - a real live dairy farmer who gets up very early in the morning to milk his cows who told us how milk gets from his cows to the cartons which we buy to use in our homes.  Fiona Jamieson helped us to make butter - we had to shake the double cream until it was solid. Then we tasted the butter on crackers - it was delicious.
