Utterly Butterly!

Following on from the visit to the Godwin farm, the children in the Senior room made butter in response to a unit of work on milk,  pasteurisation and milk products. Making butter by hand uses a lot of our energy. Through the years, companies came up with a new way of making butter that uses electricial energy. This is a much more efficient way of making the butter.

Their verdict on the home made butter: DELICIOUS!!!

Welcome Back Everyone!

Published by under Uncategorized

Another great start to the year in Belmont N.S. This year, we have ten new pupils. They are really enjoying their time at school.

All of the children have grown over the Summer and we are delighted to see everyone back safe and sound.

However, the sunflowers in the garden grew the most. Take a look below!
