It’s reel tartan fun at school’s Scots events
West Coats Primary have had several Scottish events over the past few weeks.
The school pupils had been learning all about their country’s history as part of Scots month.
They learned songs, recited poems, listened to traditional stories, took part in games to guess the meanings of Scot’s words and found out about famous Scottish inventions as well as tasting traditional Scottish food.
The school choir performed two songs from their recent performance at the Bridgeton Burns competition.
Primary one held a Burn’s Supper and invited the boys and girls in Primary one from St Cadoc’s Primary to join them.
The upper school then got to find out fascinating facts about the Highland Games.
It was a fantastic experience made even more special by being piped in to the sound of the bagpipes by a local piper, James Smith.
Teacher Angela Ferry said: “They got to showcase their learning and experience things they wouldn’t normally.
“They got to try Scottish food and learn at the same time, while coming together with another school in the community and they made some magnificent banners for that.
“Some of the P7s didn’t know about the Highland Games and really got to learn about that, while the P5s did the Hokey Cokey in the Scottish language, which was really fun.
“Some of the children learned about tartan, too.
“It was a great day and they had a lot of fun.”
