P6A Tam O Shanter

As part of our Scotland topic this term we’ve been studying Robert Burns and looking in detail at his famous poem ‘Tam o Shanter’. The children translated a section of the poem each, researched the meaning of the ‘scots words’ used, and then retold the story of the character Tam O Shanter by creating scenes to represent the different events throughout the poem. The children also did a fantastic job learning and reciting (and even singing!) one of Robert Burns poems. It was a very difficult job to choose only two finalists when so many had put in a tremendous effort. Congratulations to Natalia and Eilidh who were chosen as finalists based on their extremely well rehearsed and dramatic portrayals of ‘Tam o Shanter’ and ‘A Red, Red Rose’
