Classroom moves to the farm


Children from Kinross Primary School saw cattle up close and discovered what barley felt like when they toured Alistair and Jane McLaren’s Classlochi­e Farm near Loch Leven.

The visit by the P2/3 pupils was organised by the Royal Highland Education Trust (RHET) as part of their project to give every child in Scotland the opportunit­y to learn about food, farming and the countrysid­e.

The farm links into the school’s ‘Growing up with Loch Leven’ project.

For many of the children it was the first time they had visited a working farm.

RHET coordinato­r for Perth and Kinross, Alix Ritchie, said the McLarens’ enthusiasm for farming had engaged the pupils.
