Party Party!

The GFAA school visits team were invited to Kaimhill for a wee party by the Primary threes and fours who had visited with us this session.  We had a great time, but plotters might want to note their reaction when they found out Peter (Plot 29) would not be able to join us.

Things changed when we said he would be back with the team next time!

What did we learn out’a school today?

Lots about growing mushrooms ….

All about muck spreading ….

Weeds make great compost ….

Everybody loves strawberries ….

 

Kaimhill’s Ace Primary 3/4 Class

Ms Fraser along with Mrs Grant brought their P3/4 class for their first visit to Garthdee field today and they made quite an impact. Their enthusiasm was very catching.

In groups, they enjoyed tattie planting, bean sowing and flower propagation and everyone was impressed with their knowledge gained in their classroom topic, Growing.

Thanks go to all and especially, Stuart, Gill, Jacqui, Phil, Graeme, Anja, Charlotte and Marion for their help on the day.  I think we can safely say, a good time was had by all!

Formula 1 Skills

We had the pleasure of hosting Mrs Maclean’s Primary 3 today.

This is a bit trickier than it looked.

 

Getting my racing lines right now.

 

Cracked it!

 

The Great Garthdee Biodiversity Challenge

We hoped Miss Rennie’s Primary 4/5 Class would rise to the biodiversity treasure hunt challenge and find it fun: and of course they did not disappoint.

Getting to the big message, but where are the boys?

Ah, there they are…

So what’s the big message?

Did we have fun? We sure did!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Big Garthdee Green Adventure

We enjoyed two visits from the Kaimhill Kids this week.  Mrs Rennie’s Class 4/5 were with us on Wednesday for a work session including veggie sowing and planting out, creating flower baskets for the Octagon and building nesting boxes and bug boxes.  Thanks to Stuart, Gill, Jacqui and Graeme.

Then on Thursday we had the first running of our new biodiversity treasure hunt with Mr Whimster and Mrs Mellis and their Primary 3 class.  I think we can say a good time was had by all – despite the glum faces during the initial briefing!
