      Hello my name Rebecca
      I am in Mrs Borthwick’s class P6. I love football and hockey. Are school starts at 8:45 and finish’s at 3:20. In Scotland we have lots of different things like Wallace’s Monument , Ben Nevis which is the tallest mountain in Scotland, Loch ness.
      Do you learn any languages and what are they? We learn French. Do you do accelerated reading? What are your favourite books.
      Please reply Rebecca 6a

      • Dear Rebecca 6a,
        Surprisingly I do not learn any languages in the US. I also don’t do accelaerated reading! My favorite series of books are the boxcar children. In this series 4 children solve mysteries.

        Thanksgiving is a special holiday in the US. On the day we eat traditional foods like turkey, apple pie and a lot of other things. Thanksgiving is a holiday that the pilgrims celebrated when they had a good year of crops on the first year of living in the new world with Indians.

  1. Dear Law Primary School, Hi! My name is Curtis in Mrs. Macniven’s fourth grade class. I like sports and I am very athletic. I play American Football, Baseball (If you have heard of it,) and basketball. School is very different here in the USA. We have yellow busses, school gets out at 2:00 PM, it starts at 7:40 AM, there are even 900 kids in this school and we only have 5 grades! My hobbies are playing sports, camping, going to the mountains, going to the beach, and traveling. My favorite sport is American Baseball. I would really want to go to Scotland sometime and see North Berwick, Edinburgh, and Aberdeen. I really want to try haggis too. My favorite food here in America is buffalo chicken wings, and steak. My favorite candy is Kit Kat or Twix. We had Columbus day a few days ago, so we had no school. Christopher Columbus was the one who discovered America. Do you have all of those foods in the UK? Did you know I used to live in the Netherlands? I lived right by you guys! Are there holidays like Columbus day in the UK , like “William Wallace day”? There aren’t very many big hills and history as in North Carolina than Scotland. How many kids are in your school? Who is the most famous person over there? What is the highest grade in your school? What do you guys do for a living? Is James Bond a famous movie over there? I want to know what Scotland is like. Have you ever seen the Lochness monster? Bye! I hope you reply to me!

  2. My name is Ryan. I’m 10 years old. I play football and baseball. I am a twin.

What sports do you play? I think it would be cool to go to Scotland. Have you ever tried haggis ?

    • Hey Meghan! I’m Carrie, in your comment that you asked some questions like what sports do we play, most of the boys in our year play football at break. But most girls play hockey but some girls play instruments. I play many instruments like flute, guitar, ukulele ect.. .also you asked if we had eaten haggis. Well most of us have because it’s very big in Scotland. I would like to ask you some questions. Does your school hold any clubs like reading club or knitting club, we have loads of activities to do at law and how do grades work because we just have primary 1,2,3,4,5,6 and 7 before high school? Hope you reply

  8. My Life in America

    Hi! I wake up at 6:00 am to get ready for school. My school starts at 7:30. We end at 2:00. We have lunch at 10:40. We have lunch for 30 minutes. Some people go on a yellow school bus, dome people have their parents pick them up, some people might do after school, or they would walk home. I ride a school bus most days or I get picked up early, maybe stay after school. After school I do homework for about an hour, and then at 3:00 to 3:30 I get ready for gymnastics. I do gymnastics for four hours every day of weekdays (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday). Sometimes or Sunday or Saturdays depending on if I have a competition. I love to draw weird things like tissue boxes and pillows. I go to a lot of football games a lot because my little brother plays. I love to go to famous gymnastics events.
    My family is two different mixes. My mom is from Africa. She is from an island called Mauritius. It is close to Madagascar. My dad’s family is part European. My great grandparents came from Europe. My mom speaks French and Creole. My dad can speak a little French. None of my family that is alive knows how to speak European.
    When I grow up I want to be a gymnastics coach. All of my coaches are very well trained. Two of my coaches are husband and wife and are Olympic medalists. They represented Russia. I would like to know what your sports you do and how long.

    • Dear Emily,
      My school is very different compared to yours! Mrs.Macniven told us you go to recess and lunch without an adult, you are so lucky! She also told us you have tennis and other sports on your playground.

      Thanksgiving is a special holiday in the US. On the day we eat traditional foods like turkey, apple pie and a lot of other things. Thanksgiving is a holiday that the pilgrims celebrated when they had a good year of crops on the first year of living in the new world with Indians.

    • Hello Emily!
      I am told that your school is a lot like yours. Have you ever been in Mrs.Macnivens class?Can you fill me in on the facts for saint Andrews cross day? Mrs.Macniven is going to teach us about it on Thursday. On my next note I will tell you some about the holiday called Thanksgiving.

      Write back soon ,Lauren

  32. St. Andrew of Scotland
    St. Andrew our patron saint will forever reign, and another brave hero will rise again.
    Never has the world seen such a wonderful man, with a big heart and proudly stand
    Our patron, the man, the hero and heart will forever be Scotland’s missing part and when Angus Mac Fergus thought he would win the battle, he was wrong and At. Andrew was our Patron. The saltire cross is bravely standing, the beautiful flag that reunites us for good,
    Saint Andrew is our hero and that is the fortunate truth

  33. Hi Lauren!
    At school we are learning Scottish Country Dancing. We do the Dashing White Sargent, the Gay Gordon’s and the Canadian Barn Dance. We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Scotland. What are you asking for Christmas? I’m asking for an IPod Nano and a new football kit. Do you wear school uniform? If you don’t you are SO lucky!
    In our playground we have monkey bars, a climbing wall, a climbing frame, a football pitch and a plantation.
    On Saturday I was a mascot at the Hibs vs. Glasgow City final (football). I got to meet all the players and get their autograph.
    i like hanging out with my BFF’s Carrie, Gemma and Amy W.
    My friend, Carrie, is writing to you while I’m typing this!BFF’s Carrie
    From Emily 🙂

    • Dear Emily,
      We are learning the Dashing White Sargent too! Mrs.Macniven says Meghan and I are the best dancers in the whole class. If you want to see me dancing look for Mrs.Macnivens post. I am we airing glasses and a penguin shirt.

      I do not know what I want for Christmas! We do not wear uniforms.

      Tell Carrie thank you for typing your letter!

      Be back soon,
      Lauren

  36. Hi Abby my name is Gemma and I am in p6 this is my life and hobbies .I wake up to go to school at 07:30am and then arrive at school at 8:30 .during school we have maths, spelling, RME/language French and much more stuff. When school is finished at 3:20pm on a Tuesday I go to orchestra which I haven’t told you I play violin which is a string instrument if you didn’t know that, And on the other days I play with my friends but sometimes I can’t because it rains a lot and we have very strong winds in Scotland. In inverness I’m pretty sure you have heard about the loch ness monster because if you have been to Scotland practically there’s something about the loch ness monster Nessie in most of the shops here but I’m sure you would love to come to Scotland because its GREAT By the way can u tell me about USA
    PS I think the U. S. A is so cool I wish I could go there someday !
    Gemma 

  37. Hi Lauren
    Here are some facts about Saint Andrew;
    Saint Andrew won the battle at Athelstaneford in 1832 AD. While the battle was being fought a white cross appeared in the sky.
