Superb start to our farming topic!

What a cluster!
What a cluster!

Alison, from the Royal Highland Education Trust, came to visit P4 and P4/5.  She came to share her knowledge and experience and talk about some of the different types of farming here in Scotland.

Alison grew up on, and still lives, on a working dairy farm.  Her brother now runs the farm and we heard and saw lots of interesting information about her family’s dairy farm.

She answered our many, many questions and even let us have a look at a cluster! Do you know what a cluster is? Ask the boys and girls in P4 and P4/5, they know!

A great afternoon and a great start to our farming topic.

Blown away by community inspired mosaics!

On a cold and windy January day, the marvellous mosaics were given a grand unveiling to the school, parents and press.

All the hard work by the volunteer children, supported by Daisy from RGU and Mrs Young, is now displayed for all to see and share outside the portacabins.  All involved in the project have been inspired by life in Cove resulting in a truly creative community collaboration.
