Leswalt Primary do Scottish Week – the history highlight!

We were delighted to welcome Kathryn from History Alive to join us for some fun at Leswalt Primary this morning!

The children are enjoying lots of activities for Scottish Week. This kicked off with their Scottish poetry recitation, handwriting and artwork judging on Friday, followed by a very successful Burns Lunch – complete with Mr Gaw piping and Mr McClure offering the Immortal Memory. This week has included art and design inspired by the Kelpies and the McCoo family, traditional music-making with Feis Rois and the tin whistle, writing in Scots, a whistle-stop tour of Scottish geography and, the highlight, today’s visit from Kathryn to fill us in on Scottish history from Mary Queen of Scots to the Jacobite Rebellion and everything in between! The grand finale will be our Scots Showcase Assembly this Friday – hope to see you there!

It’s been great fun and a tremendous way for the children to learn more about Scottish traditions, culture and history. Just take a look at our photos below…
