Happy St Andrew's Day!

With St Andrew's Day approaching on Monday 30th, I thought it would be fitting to post some links to a wealth of poetry written in Scots language that would work well with children.

From the Scottish Poetry Library website, simply click on hyperlink below to find a collection of Scots poems for children:

Or for a more traditional flavour of Scots poetry from Burns you can see his complete works at: http://www.robertburns.org/works/  and you will also find some of the vocabulary translated into English, French, German and Spanish.

Or if you want to explore rhyme in Scots, why not watch and listen to The Gruffalo in Scots?  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2qmm9o77NU

With just over three weeks until the deadline for MTOT entries, we hope your pupils are enjoying being creative with language.  Remember to send written entries as scanned documents or performances as video clips to us by 18th December. Any queries, just drop me a line:
