The following information comes from Education Scotland’s Weekly Digest:
St.Bridget’s Early Years class, North Ayrshire, dedicates every Wednesday to Scots learning. They have Scottish snacks, listen to stories in Scots and they even recite poetry in Scots.
The class has been promoting Scottish landscapes and places of interest which the children have been talking about at home with their families. Some children have visited the Wallace monument and Linlithgow Palace. The children have grown in confidence by learning through Scots and the parent and carers have enjoyed being involved.
