Primary 3B have had a busy two weeks finding out about Scottish traditions and culture.
Over the weeks they have had a go at making their own tartan, found out about some famous Scots, learned and performed a poem in Scots and finished it all off with a glass of Irn Bru and piece of shortbread!
The children were particularly interested in learning about traditional clothing. Miss Low brought in a kilt, sporran, shoes and sgian dhu and Callum shared some photos of him wearing a kilt at his mum and dad’s wedding. Miss Low also brought in a Highland dance outfit which Saanvi modelled for us beautifully. After this, the pupils all had great fun making their own Scottish outfits!
The whole school enjoyed a very special Scots assembly led by ‘The Sorries’ to mark our annual Scots focus week. Our children from nursery to P7 performed a variety of Scots songs and poems, and we all loved the live music performance from ‘The Sorries’.
P4 and P5/4 also enjoyed a bodrum drum workshop after the assembly was over with Douglas and Martin.
The boys and girls were learning all about collage when they made these super Santa’s. They used a variety of different types of paper, including magazines, tissue and wrapping paper. They ripped the paper to create their designs and added little details at the end with pen. They look great, well done!
