The pupils at Underley took part in celebrating ‘Burns night’. This gave the pupils an opportunity to explore many aspects of the Scottish culture, in various ways from sampling Haggis at lunchtime to participating in an adapted Highland games session. The students participated in the ‘Underley Highland games’ which consisted of pupils taking part in a variety of games within mixed groups. We had the Haggis v Tatties relay race, welly throwing, the caber and the fence jump. The pupils were enthusiastic throughout and loved taking part in the activities.
Not only did the event give the pupils an opportunity to learn about different sporting cultures and try first hand at sporting activities it also showed how sporting events are adapted in different parts of the world.
All pupils showed excellent teamwork and encouragement to their peers. The event had positive impact on self-esteem, self-worth, friendships, communication skills and social skills. It was fantastic to see them all working together with unfamiliar peers and showing understanding.
What a great celebration!
