Brake's Giant Walk
Thousands of children across the UK set off from their school gates in June 2015, celebrating the wonders of walking by taking part in Brake's Giant Walk.
This annual event is a fantastic way for children to put their best feet forwards for road safety: to say "yes!" to the health and planet-saving benefits of walking, and "no!" to fast driving that threatens children's safety. The UK has a poor record for protecting children on foot and bike compared to many European neighbours. Half our children are driven to school, increasing pollution, danger and damaging health.
Robert Burns, also known as Rabbie Burns, the Bard of Ayrshire was a Scottish poet and lyricist and was born on 25 January 1759.He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland and is celebrated worldwide.
Our celebrations on his birthday this year included; Scottish Highland Dancing demonstrated by Sophie and Jess, Scottish music played on the bagpipes by Iris, a delicious traditional Burns lunch of haggis,neeps and tatties cooked by Lucille and Louise, the Address to a Haggis by Julia, the Selkirk Grace and poetry reading by children in class 4.
