Newton Farm Primary School and Nursery Class

Something fishy is going on in Room 14…


Room 14 have had a very busy week indeed from rehearsing for their class assembly next Friday (24th) to beginning our Lion King rehearsals. However something else, rather fishy, has been happening… We’ve started our Clyde in the Classroom topic!

On Wednesday this week we had our trip to the science centre to participate in the launch event for the topic (run by the Clyde River Foundation). The project allows pupils the chance to look after brown trout eggs and rear them until they are big enough to be released into the River Clyde. Our hatchery arrived today and our eggs will arrive on 27th January. This gives us time to prepare the hatchery and familiarise ourselves with the daily process required to look after our eggs. We will receive weekly visits from a scientist, named Paul, who will help us to look after the fish eggs and make sure we’re on the right track! In around 7-10 weeks time, the class will have another trip to release the fish into a local stream/burn that feeds into the river. If you’d like any more information on the project, feel free to visit the following website:
