PUPILS and staff at Timmergreens Primary School, Arbroath, celebrated the end of their Scottish week with a ‘Touch of Tartan’ afternoon last Friday.
This was the finale to a successful programme in which the children had taken part in a mini highland games, listened to a visiting storyteller, enjoyed a ‘Monster Challenge’ and ‘Monster Ball’, recited Scottish poems and learned a variety of Scottish dances.
The afternoon allowed the children to perform their dances, hear the winners of the poetry competition and share the interesting facts they had researched about towns from each of the letters making up Timmergreens.
Lewis Smith, a former pupil, returned to play his bagpipes and was accompanied by his brother Greg on drums. Other children showed off their talent on chanters and drums.
Mrs Gordon, headteacher, said that everyone had thoroughly enjoyed the week.
