Rabbie Burns was a Poet, ask the Beavers to think of some Scottish things and try to make a short poem about them.
Read a Scottish poem and sing a Scottish song.


Pens, Paper, Imagination and some Adult prompting I shouldn't be surprised
"The Selkirk Grace"
Some hae meat and canna eat
And some wad eat that want it
But we hae meat and we can eat
And sae the Lord be thankit.


Briefly explain what a poem is, read out a very short one of Rabbie Burns' poems (eg The Selkirk Grace - above) and explain it is in a language called auld scots, get them to write a poem about something/s Scottish and maybe draw a picture to illustrate it
