As a class we enjoyed finding out a little bit about Scotland.
We designed pamphlets to encourage people to come to Scotland, during this the Homecoming year. Have a read of some of our ideas and thoughts about why people should come to Scotland.
We have also typed up the Scottish poems that we learned so that you too can have a go at reading them. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
We have also included a quiz, made up by Andrew and Jordan, for you to try. Can you match the person to the reason they are famous. Answers to follow.
Come to Scotland
Try the Food: Eat haggis, stovies and short bread.
Try the sports: You can play golf, go skating, swimming and lots more.
Come and see the Places: You can go to Edinburgh Castle, Mormond Hill to see the white horse or you can try to climb Ben Nevis.
A brilliant place is Scotland. Come and just enjoy yourself with all this good stuff to do. So if you are looking somewhere to go for a holiday the place to go is SCOTLAND!!!!!

We had to learn one of these poems off by heart.
Pedro paddock bides in Fife
Hasna hoppit far in life
He’s sae bored it nips his lugs
Catchin the same clarty bugs
Richt scunnered wi himself yin day
He loups Loch Leven and the Tay
A happy paddy nou that he’s free
He turbo-skites over the cauld North Sea
Oor paddocks in France in under and oor
Whaur he bangs he’s heid aff the Eiffel touer
Owre Europe he jouks, intae Egypt he jinks
Tae he’s keekin up at the stoorie auld sphinx
Then guddles aboot in the bay o Bengal
An staps for a jam piece at the Taj Mahal
But Pedro Puddock’s leggies are pure gowpin
Efter aw that intercontinental lowpin
Sair teeth By Ellie McDonald
I’ll hae tae buy a dentist’s drill
Tae gie my Teddy’s teeth a fill
I’ve telt him every nicht,
Clean yer teeth and dae it richt.
But Teddy disnae – that’s for shair-
And nou his twa front teeth are sair.
My teddy’s thrawn as thrawn can be
N winna pey nae heed tae me.
My mither says ‘weill that’s a laugh.
Wha dae ye think he taks it aff?
Snailie by Sheena Blackhall
Snailie snailie on the waa
Are ye niver feart ye’d fa?
Wi yer hoosie on yer back
Like a hiker wi a pack?
Feech, snailie! Dicht yer snoot!
Slivvrin ower the watter spoot!
