Scots Focus Showcase

Our Scots Focus showcase will take place on Monday 27th January in our gym hall to which everyone is invited.  

The showcase is an opportunity to share with parents the work which has been undertaken during our Scots Focus.  Each stage will be given a 10 minute time slot (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) to perform to parents. 

Refreshments will be served here throughout the day.

Parents will also have an opportunity to visit class areas so pupils can show and talk about the work which has been undertaken. P6X and P7Y will be focusing on their work for the Moscars so they will not have parents back to class re Scots focus work.

We hope that you have had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

Well another year is now well underway at Lasswade Primary School and we have lots to look forward to this term starting with our Scots Focus work. 

Today children were learning a variety of Scottish songs – old and new and will be looking at Scottish tales in class and preparing work to display as part of the Homecoming.  We will be holding a showcase towards the end of this month.
