In p3/4 they have been learning about crofting. In there topic they have learnt how to plant and grow potatoes, barley, wheat, beans and more. They had also people in to talk to them about crofting and 1 fact that they found out was that in the winter that the farmers took there animals into there houses and keep them on 1 half of the room while the farmers lived on the other half of the room they also found out that there is 12o crofts on Islay. they learnt where barley came from and how it gets harvested and they learnt that it is best to pick strawberries every 5 months. the p3/4’s have enjoyed learning about crofting and hope to do another topic like crofting again.
