Scots Poem

P3A have been working on alliterations in their writing! We thought you might like to read the class poem that they wrote together ahead of our Scottish Assembly tomorrow.

A Wee Poem by P3A

A haunless hurcheon hingin from a hootlet,

A cauld cuddie chappin on a coo’s door,

Twa tottie tods putting on troosers,

A peerie puggie is pentin a picture,

A broon baudran was booncin on a baffie,

A muckle moose mairried a mingin midgie,

A hummin hurcheon hingin on a hill made of haggis,

A dauncin dug doesnae drap,

A puir peerie papingo pentin a lady and pouin pechs,

A tottie tod is taking a tattie,

A haiverin hoolet howks a hole,

A braw baudran bletherin on a boat,

An eejit earn eating a moose,

A clarty cuddie cowps a coo.

Edinburgh and Midlothian Schools Swimming Championships


Georgia (P7) was a star last Sunday  at the Edinburgh and Midlothian Schools Swimming Championships. Being the only pupil, whose times were fast enough to qualify  she competed in the 50m free style and the 50m butterfly representing CPS.

Unfortunately, Georgia’s goggles came off as she turned in the butterfly, but she showed her resilience and swam on finishing the race. Goggles sorted, her determination showed in the freestyle where she got a PB. 

Georgia represented Currie wonderfully and was very social with the other swimmers she knew and met.

The great news is Georgia can compete for CPS again next year as she is not 12 until next year. Hopefully we can have some other swimmers to join her.
