Today, P3 got to visit Gladstone’s Land, an Edinburgh tenement building which has been restored to look the way it did in the 17th century.
We started our trip with a quick stop at Edinburgh castle to eat our snack.
Then we headed to Gladstone’s Land to get dressed up for our tour. We headed around the building in groups where we got to see different rooms of the house and find out what they would have been used for. We even got to find out what some of them would have smelled like, they weren’t very pleasant!
This afternoon, Angela from Changeworks came to visit P3a. She told us all about what happens to the food we waste and how it damages our environment if it ends up in a landfill site. We found out that the best way to stop this happening is to finish all the food on our plates. We were given some lovely stickers to encourage us to do this with our lunch tomorrow.
However, we can also recycle our food using our food waste bins. Angela told us that when we do this our food can be turned into energy which can be used as electricity. We were able to recreate this process and are waiting to see which experiment produces the most energy.
Miss White and Miss Chapman just want to say a massive well done to all primary 3 pupils for delivering such an excellent assembly today. It was so informative and you put so much hard work and effort into making it look great. We are very proud of you all 😃
Our afternoon nursery children visited Newcraighall Fire Station today. We were even allowed a drive in the fire engine with the siren on 🚒
