Dalkeith Country Park

Dalkeith country park

On Tuesday the 26th of May 2015 P3 and P5 went to Dalkeith Country Park. They went to learn a lot more about farms and farmers.
Dairy

They learned if you shake milk for 15 minutes it turns into scrambled milk and if you keep shaking it it turns into butter.image

They learned you have to put your hand behind a cows tail so they can milk it.

Trees
They learned that beech trees grow very large. They saw a tree getting cut down and they leaned all about the different animals who live in the trees.

imageSheep
They learned about different type of sheep. They learned how to use wool with a spinning wheel and how sheep go to the market!

Conclusion

They liked trees because we learned a lot at the tree station.

They learned how to make flour when they made it in the olden days.

We probably need to work on paying attention more.
