Scots Week

Primary 2 will be finding out interesting facts about Scotland!

We will be researching places to visit, famous Scots, our weather and things typically Scottish such as haggis, tartan, thistles and golden eagles.

The children will also be listening to familiar stories written in Scottish language. They will be investigating familiar well known expressions and use them oral and written literacy.

As part of our Scottish week the children will learn to recite and sing “Auld Lang Syne” when learning about Robert Burns.

At the end of the week there is a family ceilidh to which everyone is invited!
