Ulster-Scots for Primary Schools

The main aim of these resources is to build capacity within primary schools so that they can teach elements of Ulster-Scots and shared cultural heritage using existing staff and resources.

Where to begin?

You may decide to involve the whole school or focus on a particular key stage and/or year group. You may choose to try some basic conversational Ulster-Scots or focus on a specific Area of Learning to provide a context to learn about aspects of Ulster-Scots Language, Culture and/or Heritage, for example, the impact of people movement during the Plantation of Ulster in The World Around Us.
