January sees Scottish schools focusing on Scots language. Addressing this I had a wonderful author visit to Doonfoot Primary School this afternoon where I introduced the P3s to Tartan Witch. Prior to this I read my poem, Learnin’ which is a child’s observation on P1 written in Scots. This was appreciatively received by children and adults.
Then P3 teacher, Mrs Falconer, read the English translation while I adopted the persona of Tartan Witch to read the story.
We had a great Q and A session with the children asking really relevant questions.
The children are now drawing Tartan Witch and hopefully I’ll be able to publish these here in the near future.
A great afternoon, well done children!
Tartan
