Camden Show 2013

Lawnmower racing

Today we attended the annual Camden Show. As well as being a great day out,  it ticked lots of boxes education wise. We learnt about loads of things from wool production to water salinity, composting to emergency services, reptiles to pasta making, farming, cooking damper and loads more.

Here the children are learning about water salinity (and also about gas extraction, energy saving and geology)

Finished damper and it tasted yummy
