Scots Stories

Class 1O2 (now 2O2) have been working on a project called Scots Stories.

Pupils worked with their English teacher, Mrs McAusland, and our librarian, Miss Black, to produce a picture book using Scots language. We also had some help from Betty Skelton (storyteller), Matthew Fitt (writer) and Kate Leiper (illustrator) who provided virtual workshops for pupils with lots of hints, tips, and advice.
Some of the groups have now finished their stories and we are delighted to share them with you! Click the links below to read our Scots Stories.
If you do find the time to read them, please leave feedback using our online form:
This project was made possible thanks to a successful bid to the School Library Improvement Fund.
