To The Homework

This week we are looking at the work of Robert Burns. We read his poem ‘To A Mouse’ and ‘To A Haggis’. For Writing this week we are going to write a poem in the style of Robert Burns, using Scots Language and with a modern twist!

For Homework:

  • choose a Theme to write about
  • write 3 things to describe your theme
  • write 3 Scots words

e.g. Theme – Pizza

1. delicious fillings 2. stuffed crusty rim and thin base 3. great takeaway meal

Scots words could be: tae aroon’ guid

The Poem on Wednesday could be:

To a Pizza

Yer cheesy, pepper’, tomato fillin’

Tae eat ya am very willin’

Yer stuff’d crust aroon’ the rim

Wad nae help me tae stay slim

Tis guid tae have a pizza once in a while

Sae pick up yer phone and start to dial

  2. To a Flower…

    Yer petals are as soft as bunny’s ears,
    and the rain drips of like falling tears.
    Yer colours are as bright as lights on trees,
    as shiny as golden keys.
    Ye have the grace of a vibrant butterfly,
    it would be a shame to see ye fall and die.
