Orange, strawberry, apple and grape

From the shop at Abernethy


Cucumber and broccoli

Peppers, peas and onions


Stripy toothpaste to brush our teeth

From the shop at Abernethy

Before we go to bed


Now we’ll have the brightest smiles

In all of Abernethy

Seesaw, slide and flying fox

With rocks and logs to sit upon

Tune: Bee Baw Babbity


Geordie Beatson rang the bell

Rang the bell, rang the bell

Geordie Beatson rang the bell

At eight o’ clock at nicht


Tae tell the bairnies tae gae hame

Tae gang hame, tae gang hame

Tae tell the bairnies tae gae hame

At 8 o clock at night


It was ca’ed the Bairns’ Bell

The Bairns’ Bell, the Bairns’ Bell

It was ca’ed the Bairns’ Bell

It rang at 8 at night


Salmon fishers on the Tay

Caught the fish everyday

Sometimes took a salmon hame

Hidden in their wellies


Secrets in the River Tay

When you hide yer fish away

Can you lean under your boat

And hang it on a hook?


P2/3 IDEAS

SAILING - TIB SMITH Her uncle Tim was the gaffer there and one day when they were not at the berries, he took them by the Dundee Road and the Pie/Pye Road and he got them a sail in a boat! It was a wonderful thing when you were 10 or 12 years old. It was a coble, with a net and a windlass.

ABERNETHY CHARACTERS - DAVE STALKER In Abernethy the Bairns' Bell rang at 8pm, a curfew to 'send them home'. Rung by George Beatson who dug the graves, 'looked after water', pulled / drove the scaffie's cairt, lit the gas lamps and put them out again if there was moonlight.

ABERNETHY CHARACTERS – JANET PATON Down Station Road, Mrs Richardson, very large two borzoi dogs. Expert maker of kilts, did not charge much, new kilt covered with borzoi hairs which had to be picked off!
