# Scottish Thistles

We enjoyed painting our clay thistles.

# Scottish singing and poetry winners

We have had a busy few weeks learning our Scottish poems and practising our Scottish songs. Everybody in the class worked so well and with so much enthusiasm and it was great to see the teamwork when people worked together to help each other.

Well done to everybody  who entered the competitions and to those who recited a poem or sang to the class.  It takes a lot of courage to stand up in front of others and either recite a poem or sing a song. Our winners were.

P6A Poetry winner was William and runner up was Elise.

P6B Poetry winner was Charlie and runner up was Rana.

P6A Singing winner was  Rose and runner up was Erin.

P6B Singing winner was Tara and runner up was Summer.

Well done to everyone 😁😁

# P6a clay work

Primary 6a have had a great time in Art this week when they made clay animal thumb pots. First they had to roll their clay into a ball and then use their thumb to make a pot. They learnt how to join two pieces of clay together by scoring the clay and then making a slip. We have enjoyed watching our clay dry as it turns a different shade of grey.

Next week we are going to make a clay tile and then we will paint all of our clay work so look out for more pictures in a few weeks time.

Click on one of the pictures so that you can our fabulous pots close up.

# Our Scottish Poems

Our Competition Poem this year is:

Address to the Toothache by Rabbie Burns

 My curse upon your venom’d stang, That shoots my tortur’d gums alang, An’ thro’ my lug  gies mony a twang, Wi’ gnawing vengeance, Tearing my nerves wi’ bitter pang, Like racking engines!  When fevers burn, or agues freezes, Rheumatics gnaw, or colics squeezes, Our neibor’s sympathy can ease us, Wi’ pitying moan; But thee – thou hell o’ a’ diseases – Aye mocks our groan.  A down my beard the slavers trickle I throw the wee stools o’er the mickle, While round the fire the giglets keckle, To see me loup, While, raving mad, I wish a heckle Were in their doup!
 In a’ the numerous human dools, Ill hairsts, daft bargains, cutty stools, Or worthy frien’s rak’d i’ the mools, – Sad sight to see! The tricks o’ knaves, or fash o’fools, Thou bear’st the gree!  Where’er that place be priests ca’ hell, Where a’ the tones o’ misery yell, An’ ranked plagues their numbers tell, In dreadfu’ raw, Thou, Toothache, surely bear’st the bell, Amang them a’!  O thou grim, mischief-making chiel, That gars the notes o’ discord squeel, Till daft mankind aft dance a reel In gore, a shoe-thick, Gie a’ the faes o’ Scotland’s weal A townmond’s toothache!

Some children have chosen to learn

Scots Wha Hae

Scots, wha hae wi’ Wallace bled,

Scots, wham Bruce has aften led;

Or to victory!

Now’s the day, and now’s the hour;

See the front o’ battle lour;

See approach proud Edward’s power—

Chains and slavery!

Wha will be a traitor knave?

Wha can fill a coward’s grave!

Wha sae base as be a slave?

Let him turn and flee!

Wha for Scotland’s king and law

Freedom’s sword will strongly draw,

Freeman stand, or freeman fa’,

By oppression’s woes and pains!

By your sons in servile chains!

We will drain our dearest veins,

But they shall be free!

Lay the proud usurpers low!

Tyrants fall in every foe!

Liberty’s in every blow!—

Let us do or die!

# Art with Sheena

Primary 6B had a great afternoon creating these brilliant clay thistles.  We used different techniques and are looking forward to painting them next week.  Thank you Sheena for coming into class today.
