As part of our whole school topic on Scotland, all the classes are learning Scots poems. Pupils are invited to choose a poem to learn at home from the poems underneath and to present their chosen poem in class on Thursday the 26th January. A pupil will be nominated from each class to perform their poem to the whole school at the Scottish Assembly on Thursday the 9th February at 9.15am.
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 single 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
An winna pey nae heed tae me.
My mither says, “Weill that’s a laugh.
What dae ye think he taks it aff?”
My mither says that we hae mice
That open air-ticht tins
And eat her chocolate biscuits
And cakes and siclike things.
Nae doubt it is an awfu shame
That mice should get the blame.
It’s really me that rypes the tins
When left alane at hame.
But jings! I get fair hungert
And biscuits taste sae nice.
But dinna tell my mither for
She thinks it is the mice.
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.
