The class wrote down what they enjoyed about the project, posted their interviews with older residents to this site (also will appear soon!). One of their final activities was to shape butter with butter pats then eat it was spreading it on a slice of tin loaf with home-made jam.
The P 5/6 class visited a variety of places around the village and had a number of local visitors in class talking about working in fishing, marine habitats, fish processing and life in Burghead in the past. They also researched, drew and wrote about their topic and participated in a variety of local crafts including net repairing and clootie mat making. To find out more follow the Education tab above this post and look for Burghead Primary School. Other schools in Moray have taken part in the project. Information on what they have done is also in the Education section.
Over the weekend a wide variety of photographs showing the children’s work on the topic will be added to this website. Also oral recordings by Tom Cumming (a local Burghead resident) will also be added. Keep checking.
