Year 2W News

The boys from 2W have been learning all about celebrations as part of their unit of inquiry into 'How We Express Ourselves'. They have looked at many cultural and religious events that they recognise and have researched the history and importance behind them. It seemed only natural to use our PE time to learn a scottish dance that we can perform as part of our St Andrew's Day assembly. Given that Scotch College has so many connections with Scotland, it provided the perfect opportunity for Mrs Webster to indulge her love of all things tartan and so the plan was hatched. Eighteen tartan clad boys threw themselves, quite literally, into learning The Flying Scotsman. They also sang a cute rendition of "Donald's Where's Your Troosers ", learning the words diligently, so much so, that during the recent spelling test some of the boys questioned the correct spelling of trousers. All things aside, it has proved to be great physical exercise, required them to learn patterns and count beats, all whilst looking resplendent in their berets and sashes.
