We have been busy learning these 2 poems. You can find them on the Scottish Poetry Library website (link below) Practise often. Everyone needs to learn a poem as part of our Scots language learning. I would love as many pupils as possible to take part in our school Scottish Poetry competition. There will be a winner and a runner up chosen from our class. Good luck everyone. The Sair Finger by Walter Wingate You've hurt your finger? Puir wee man! Your pinkie? Deary me! Noo, juist you haud it that wey till I get my specs and see! My, so it is - and there's the skelf! Noo, dinna greet nae mair. See there - my needle's gotten't out! I'm sure that wasna sair? And noo, to make it hale the morn, Put on a wee bit saw, And tie a Bonnie hankie roun't Noo, there na - rin awa'! Your finger sair ana'? Ye rogue, You're only lettin' on. Weel, weel, then - see noo, there ye are, Row'd up the same as John! http://www.scottishpoetrylibrary.org.uk/poetry/poems/sair-finger
