Burns night and a special visitor


One of our children has grandparents who are Scottish. This gave us the opportunity to talk about burns night and introduce some poetry to the children.

We talked together about other words that rhyme such as mouse and house, cat and hat.

We gave the children opportunities to create a Scottish flag, by sponging paint on paper then peeling off the masking tape, using their finger and thumb to hold the edge of the tape. They were able to use language such as line and cross to describe what they could see when the tape was off.

The following week we invited reception to join us as we had a visit from our child’s daddy. He arrived in his smart Scottish traditional dress with his bagpipes, and talked to the children about his bagpipes and how to play them. The children watched on in awe as the pipes were played.
