P3 visit Gorgie Farm

Our P3 classes visited Gorgie City Farm last week.

Children had a chance to visit with the cow, goats, sheep, pigs – including adorable piglets! and met with the Gorgie Farm team to learn more about the animals.

Eve (P3B) said:

” We met a tortoise and got to touch it – you had to make pancake hands if you wanted to hold it, or you could stroke it instead.  We also got to feed a small rabbit – it was so cute!
We made butter by using half a tub of double cream and some salt and we all took turns shaking it till it got harder and harder, and then we spread it on bread and  ‘tested it’ – and it was really good!”
