More allotment news

Our allotment is making progress. The students from Angus College came to rotivate the soil and the boys in Mrs Finlayson’s class have tidied away some of the rubbish.

A big improvement!

We are hoping that some of the children in our class can go over in the coming weeks and help spread some compost on top.

We are planning to grow some potatoes to start off with. Mrs Finlayson came through to tell us about “chitting” potatoes. Chitting is the process of placing seed potatoes in a cool, light place to encourage strong sturdy shoots to grow before they are planted in the ground. We have placed some potatoes upright in an egg box in our classroom to “chit” them. We have two varieties called Maris Bard and Duke of York. We are hoping that these will be ready to harvest before the summer holidays.

Multiplication

Today we played some games to help us learn how to multiply. We used hoops to make sets or groups and then placed the same number of bean bags in each hoop. We then worked out what the multiplication sentence and answer would be.

After that we used played some games using dice, cubes and target boards.

Look how many sums we managed to make using our dice!

Highland Cows

We made these Highland Cows to send to Taiwan together with our kilts. Aren’t they cute?
