Och aye the noo! St Andrew’s Day Celebrations at Bluecoat

Thursday 30th November was St. Andrew’s Day…and what a day it was!

For the whole day, as part of our British Values Learning, the school from reception to year 6 was steeped in finding out about the beauty, people and culture of Scotland. From porridge to Irn Bru, castles to islands, regions to main cities, bens to lochs, bagpipes to sword dancing, we covered it all!

The school was looking as vibrant as ever as many children and staff came clothed in tartan, and at lunch time the children enjoyed a special menu of Haggis, neeps and tatties (minced beef in gravy, swede and potatoes) followed by Scottish Shortbread. A particular highlight of the day was the sound of traditional Scottish bagpipes from Pipe Major Gaylena Humphreys of Bideford Junior Pipe Band.
