Leave a comment


Dear Parent/ Carer,

As part of our whole-school topic on Scotland, all the classes are learning Scots poems. Pupils are invited to choose a poem (see below) to learn at home and to present their chosen poem in class on Thursday the 26th of January. A pupil will be chosen from each class to perform their poem to the whole school at the Tollcross Scottish assembly which is on Thursday 9h of February at 9.15am.

Mince and Tatties

by J. K. Annand


I dinna like hail tatties

Pit on my plate o mince

For when I tak my denner

I eat them baith at yince.


Sae mash and mix the tatties

Wi mince into the mashin,

And sic a tasty denner

Will aye be voted ‘Smashin!’



The Wee Rid Motor

By Sandy Thomas Ross


In my wee rid motor,

I can gang for miles,

Up and doon the gairden,

through the lobby whiles.

Mony a bigger motor

gangs tae toons afaur.

Nane can gang whaur I gang

In my wee rid caur.


The Selkirk Grace

by Robert Burns

Some hae meat and canna eat,

And some wad eat that want it ;

But we hae meat, and we can eat,

And sae the Lord be thanket.
