Kirknewton Primary School

P2 Scottish focus.


Primary 2 enjoyed designing their tartans by repeating colours and creating a pattern. The results were very colourful and will make a vibrant display. The children learned the Humpty Dumpty rhyme in Scots which they all performed for P1 during our Burns party. The children brain stormed the question “what is Scotland made of? ” . Some of the ideas were mountains, Nessie, Katie Morag, eagles, Scotty dogs and of course midges. They then painted their ideas using real photos as a guide. Next we thought of adjectives to describe the paintings and then rewrote our sentences using Scottish adjectives.The children used these sentences the next day to write stories about their paintings. Some of the children showed these in our Scottish sharing assembly today as well as reciting the poem. Primary 1 kindly invited us to their Burns celebration and we enjoyed eating our Scottish dishes and playing pass the haggis. Thanks to Ms. Payne for organising it all. I was pleased to see the children having a try of the food even  if they were a little  unsure as to if they would like it!


  1. P2 – I was really impressed with all the things you shared with us at our Scots assembly. I really liked the paintings of the homes and the models you have been creating of the Celtic round houses.
    It’s great to see you developing your creative and concentration skills.
    Well done P2

  2. Well done P1 and P2. Looks like you have all had lots of fun with the Scottish focus. Thank you Ms Payne and Miss Hocking.
