The First Burns Supper
P1-4 had their first ever Burns Supper which was a great success. Mrs Skeldon made stovies for everyone which were very tasty. Each class recited a Scottish poem and everyone sang Auld Lang
Syne together. Everyone agreed that they would do it again next year.

Scottish week was a great success!
P1-3 did lots of fun activities.P2/3 designed Nessie puppets and were great at showing P12 how to make them.
They learned a poem about Nessie which they performed to the whole school at the Ceilidh-Some of the big boys and girls didn’t know what some of the scottish words meant-maybe P1-3 can explain to them!

P1-3 tasted haggis,neeps and tatties and they ate the lot! Martyna,one of our Polish pupils tasted Haggis for the first time and wanted to know where it was bought so her mum could buy it, because she liked it so much.

The week ended with a whole school Ceilidh. Every class had learned a few dances which were performed at the Ceilidh. We all had a great time but the teachers were tired after one dance!

We hope to have another Ceilidh again soon!
