This year we have developed a strong community link with Newton Mearns. We continued to develop this link with a visit to the store. The children learned how to use the scanner at the tills and described it as “the best day ever!” Thank you to Leigh
The children have been developing their skills for learning, life and work. We harvested the potatoes we grew in the garden and then decided to sell these to our families.
We had to weigh the potatoes and bag them and decide how much to sell them for.
We wrote the price on the bags and set up a stall.
We handled money, issuing change and totalled the amount of money raised.
We decided to use the proceeds to purchase more seeds so we visited Rouken Glen Garden Centre to buy more.
Some children brought in photographs of the potatoes which they had for their dinner and told us how tasty they were!
We were building a house using the large blocks . We used tools and took on the roles of the different people needed to build a house. We had to plan and work together and we had to take risks as we climbed up to construct the roof.
We even decided to build a shop for the workers to go to when they had a break!
