Primary 3’s new topic is ‘Food and Farming’. The children have been learning about produce that comes from Scotland and appreciating the wide variety of foods that come from our country.
As part of our topic, we will soon be visiting a real life beef cattle and sheep farm in the Borders. To prepare for our visit, the Farmer (Farmer Pete) and his assistant Mary came to our classroom today. He told us all about his farm and we asked him questions that we prepared at the beginning of our topic. We learned that his farm is 800 acres! We also learned that he had just delivered a calf that morning and that cows have four stomachs! He told us that we would see a blue and white cow when we visit….. we can’t wait!
