|Jim teaching in 2º ESO B/C|
Last week , our new language assistant James Ferrie - a Glaswegian helping the English department for the academic year - came to school dressed like a Scotsman.
Jim had promised the students in his preliminary sessions that he would wear a kilt one day. Not being one to renege on promises , he did so last Wednesday.
Jim prepared a very interesting lesson on the various parts of the outfit , the different tartans and on some important figures of Scottish history : we could learn about William Wallace, Bonnie Prince Charles or Rob Roy.

The children enjoyed it a lot and asked some clever questions . Besides , Jim was so kind as to let them physically touch the belt , the sporran ( a pouch which serves as a wallet int he pocketless Scottish kilt ) and the sgian dubh ( the small knife Jim wore tucked into the top of the kilt hose as tradition demands ) .
They loved passing all these around as you can see in the picture .
It was a nice morning - both students and teachers agreed it had been a wonderful opportunity to learn a bit more about Scotland.

Jim was obviously the centre of attention - everybody wanted a picture with him.
