Author Visit

The pupils in the Primary 1 to Primary 3 classes were visited by a real author this week. Emma O’Connor, author of children’s picture book Under Grandma’s Table, did a reading and story writing workshop with each class. The children enjoyed listening to the story and came up with fantastic ideas from their imaginations to create a class story together.

World Book Day 2022 P3

Our theme for World Book Day this year was ‘Equality.’

Primary P3 explored a wide range of new books centred around the theme of Equalities. In pairs, they carried out some shared reading.  The children really enjoyed being read a story by their friend 🙂

P2/3 Pancakes

P2/3 have had great fun tasting various types of pancakes and toppings.

The children learned about the traditions associated with Shrove Tuesday in all 4 countries of the UK.

We tasted Scotch Pancakes and larger traditional pancakes with different toppings. The children enjoyed the lemon and sugar combo but everyone loved the syrup and banana!

Have a look at our fun photos.

P2/3 Burns Supper

We have been learning all about Scotland over the past few weeks. Today to celebrate Rabbie Burns birthday, we completed our individual clan tartans and designed Burns Supper menus. We enjoyed Scottish Country Dancing with Mrs Ewen and then settled down for the main event, our supper. All the children tried some oatcakes, beeps, tatties and vegetarian haggis followed by some delicious Tunnocks treats for pudding. We washed it all down with a wee dram of IrnBru.Every child was a great sport and gave this new food a try with lots asking for second!

Have a Great Burns Nicht!

Enjoy your Burns Nicht tonight and don’t forget to have a chat with your dinner first. Burns wrote this to say to a haggis before eating it.

Address to a Haggis By Robert Burns

Fair fa’ your honest, sonsie face,
Great Chieftain o’ the Puddin-race!
Aboon them a’ ye tak your place,
Painch, tripe, or thairm:
Weel are ye wordy of a grace
As lang ‘s my arm.

The groaning trencher there ye fill,
Your hurdies like a distant hill,
Your pin wad help to mend a mill
In time o’ need,
While thro’ your pores the dews distil
Like amber bead.

His knife see Rustic-labour dight,
An’ cut ye up wi’ ready slight,
Trenching your gushing entrails bright,
Like onie ditch;
And then, O what a glorious sight,
Warm-reekin, rich!

Then, horn for horn, they stretch an’ strive:
Deil tak the hindmost, on they drive,
Till a’ their weel-swall’d kytes belyve
Are bent like drums;
Then auld Guidman, maist like to rive,
Bethankit hums.

Is there that owre his French ragout,
Or olio that wad staw a sow,
Or fricassee wad mak her spew
Wi’ perfect sconner,
Looks down wi’ sneering, scornfu’ view
On sic a dinner?

Poor devil! see him owre his trash,
As feckless as a wither’d rash,
His spindle shank a guid whip-lash,
His nieve a nit;
Thro’ bluidy flood or field to dash,
O how unfit!

But mark the Rustic, haggis-fed,
The trembling earth resounds his tread,
Clap in his walie nieve a blade,
He’ll make it whissle;
An’ legs, an’ arms, an’ heads will sned,
Like taps o’ thrissle.

Ye Pow’rs wha mak mankind your care,
And dish them out their bill o’ fare,
Auld Scotland wants nae skinking ware
That jaups in luggies;
But, if ye wish her gratefu’ prayer,
Gie her a Haggis!
