PRIMARY 4 pupils from a Leven school embarked on a tour of the area in aid of a class project.

The children, from St Agathas Primary School, set out on a mission to find out about life in the past, present and future for their end of term project.

With a view to learning about what life was like for those living in Levenmouth in the past, the pupils visited the Methil Heritage Centre, where they found out about the importance of coal mining to the area, and later, the expansion of the Methil Docks.

Later in the day, they travelled to Methil Docks to see for themselves how the landscape has changed before being given a tour of the Fife Renewables Innovation Centre.

P4 teacher Antonia Pettifer said a good day was had by all, and the children really enjoyed their visit to the FRIC, where they discussed renewable energy.

They were also lucky enough to get an up-close look at Poppy, Methil Dock’s very own wind turbine, which Antonia says the children found “fascinating”.
