Last week saw our Junior school pupils piped into school on Monday morning by Colin Ferguson, a Former Pupil of the school himself, kicking off a wonderful week celebrating Scottish culture; all in memory of our national bard.
The children enjoyed learning and performing Scots poetry and music, from the more traditional Burns to some more modern and humorous verse. They took part in an indoor Highland Games allowing the children to try out some hammer throwing, caber tossing and of course the uniquely Scottish sport of welly whanging!
A week celebrating Scottish culture would not be complete without food and our Junior 4 class stepped up turning their classroom into the Wee Thistle Café and opening their doors to lots of hungry customers, desperate to try their haggis bon bons and tablet.
Ailsa Lawn, Head of Junior School commented ‘Wherever possible, we like to bring learning to life for our pupils and this week has enable us to do that on so many levels. Not only are the children learning about history and culture but they are also exploring language through different mediums and even practising their maths cashing up their takings in the Wee Thistle Café’.
