Primary 6 Burns Supper

Burns 200wOn Friday 27 January 2017 Primary 6 enjoyed a Burns Supper with the boys from Merchiston Castle. Everyone really enjoyed the event. We started the afternoon off with a bit of Scottish country dancing to get to know each other, firstly the Gay Gordons, then the Dashing White Sergeant, next the Flying Scotsman and finally Strip the Willow. To get our breath back, we decided to eat, but before that the traditional piping of the Haggis was to be heard.

All of the Primary 6 girls have been learning and reciting poems by the poet Robert Burns. Some of the finalists of the Burns recital competition were chosen to recite their poems at the Burns Supper. Two girls from P6Q recited Address to the Haggis with great expression and then two boys from Merchiston Castle read out the other verses from the poem. Next toasting the lassies started and then obviously a reply from the lassies. Finally we went back downstairs to do some more dancing. More poems were recited, more songs were sung and more dances were danced but finally the afternoon was over. All of Primary 6 would like to say thank you to our teachers, the ceilidh band, the chefs and the music teachers.

Judy & Isobel, P6Q
