Just after 9:15 am last Friday 25 January the school reverberated to the sound of the bagpipes. This distinctive Scottish sound heralded the start of our Burns celebration and all our learning pathways followed the road north to Scotland
Pupils experienced Scottish food, story, music, dance, and drumming. They listened to and retold legends and performed the witches spell from ‘Macbeth’ (The Scottish play) by William Shakespeare, but with a beatbox twist and made kilts in art.
The school lunch had an array of Scottish food and it was heart-warming to witness so many of our young people tucking into lunch with a hearty appetite. With the Burns Grace said before the meal, the words were clearly taken to heart
‘“Some hae meat and canna eat, And some wad eat that want it, But we hae meat and we can eat, And sae the Lord be thankit.”
