We are very excited to announce the visit to the school of local author Lindsay Littleston. She will be speaking to children in P5-7 about creative writing and life as an author. Her books will be available to purchase on the day at the price of £6 each but there is absolutely no obligation to buy! Children can bring cash on the day if they wish to buy.
She will be reading from her latest novels, The Titanic Detective Agency and Guardians of the Wild Unicorns.
It will be a fun, interactive presentation with a quiz, book reading and question and answer session.

We are at that time of year again when Bishopton Primary celebrates the diversity of language that is spoken across Scotland. Oor Scots celebrations, as always will, build towards a special assembly when we can share popular poetry written in the Scots tongue.
In primary 6 it is tradition to focus on the poems of the bard Robert Burns. We would ask the children to choose a poem by Robert Burns to learn and recite to the class.
We expect the poem to be chosen by 16/01/2020 to give enough time for it to be memorized. Pupils will be given support within the class to learn and perform there poem.

Poems can be sourced from the link above. This site also has readers to help pupils with pronunciation.
