P7’s Finnish Visitors

On Tuesday 17th April, we welcomed 22 students and 2 teachers from Helsinki in Finland to Lasswade Primary to meet with our P7 class. We had a lovely day working together sharing information about our different cultures, geography and history. The children had the opportunity to taste some Finnish foods such as mammi (Easter pudding), rye breads, Finnish chocolate and salt liquorice. We learned how to play Mollky (a bit like skittles) and had a competitive game outside. A traditional Scottish lunch of haggis, neeps and tatties was served for lunch with Irn Bru, shortbread and Edinburgh Rock. The day was completed with some Scottish Country dancing led by Karen Campbell and our P7 children singing Flower of Scotland and Auld Lang Syne.
