NURSERY children celebrated the birthday of Scotland’s national bard.

The youngsters, staff and parents at Portland House Nursery, based in Lindley, enjoyed a Scottish-themed day.

It was part of many celebrations being held across the country in honour of poet Robert Burns.

The main highlight was a performance by renowned Yorkshire-based bagpiper Ed Arnold.

The youngsters also tasted haggis, listened to Scottish poems and danced and sang to Scottish music.

Nursery manager Julie Lister said: “We have a number of children with Scottish heritage attending the nursery.

“This is a fun way of celebrating some of the wonderful traditions we have here in the UK and to learn more about Scotland.”
