P5/6 Burns Poetry

As a part of their topic, Scots who Shaped our History, the children in P5/6 worked in pairs to act out a piece of dialogue based on Rabbie Burns’ poem, My Love is Like a Red, Red Rose! They were really enthusiastic about getting into role, some even dressing up. The only problem they had was with the Scots dialect…..”but Miss Drummond, we get in trouble for speaking in slang at home….” I had to assure them that it was ok in this instance. Some excellent drama skills were practised during this lesson. Some budding thespians in the making!

  1. Dear P6 and Mr McLeay
    thank you for a very entertaining Burns Supper today. I could see how much work you had all done to get everything so well organised. I loved the artwork, the dancing, singing and the poems. I was especially impressed by the addresses to the lassies and the laddies. You all showed a huge amount of confidence and did yourselves proud.
    thanks again
