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
