Dalbeattie Primary has been celebrating Harvest time with a new approach this year…and it certainly had all the pupils completely engaged! Two of the teachers, Mrs Dawes and Mrs Burn were willing participants in a game of Ready Steady Cook. Head Teacher Mrs Duncan set the challenge by presenting each candidate with a selection of vegetables or fruit. While the green pepper contestant’s dish of vegetables arranged as a scarecrow’s face did prove very popular with the pupils, it was the red tomato contestant who won the challenge; the children voted for her ‘Seasonal fruit Salad.’
The challenge, although fun, reminded the children about being thankful for our harvest and the assembly was made complete with harvest songs and a prayer of thanks.
Mrs Dawes and Mrs Burn both hard at work.
