P2/3 hosted the school assembly last Friday. They had been learning all about Scottish Culture. As part of their topic we looked at Scots language. The children performed a Scots version of Three Little Pigs – Three Wee Piggies. They did a grand job and nae matter how many times the wouf huffed and puffed he couldnae blaw doon the hoose o bricks!
On Tuesday P3 pupils got the chance to play in a football festival at Forresters. They practised their skills at different stations and played 5v5 games against other P3s in the cluster. Lots of fun was had by all pupils and they behaved impeccably. Well done you did Macmerry proud!
