Scotland

We believe it is important to understand Scottish history, language and culture.  Connecting with Scotland as a place through our landscape and natural heritage are an important part of developing a sense of identity, confidence and well being which will help young people to flourish in learning, life and work. 

Ceilidh

As part of learning about Scottish culture and heritage pupils learned a few Scottish country dances! They had a ceilidh which is a traditional gathering involving Gaelic folk music and dancing. The word ceilidh (kay-lee) descends from the Gaelic word for 'gathering' or 'party.' Pupils thoroughly enjoyed dancing along to a fantastic ceilidh band on Robert Burns day. 

  



Scottish Heritage

Pupils have learned about famous Scottish people including Robert Burns and Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Pupils have looked at famous Scottish landmarks and cities including Glasgow and Inverness. We have had a try at writing poems and stories in Scots as well as singing Scots songs such as 'Donald Where's Your Troosers?' and 'Will Ye Go Lassie Go'. others have been looking at cities and creating Scottish pictures.
