Fred Freeman and Scots

On Tuesday 5th November 2013, Dr Fred Freeman came into Coatbridge High School to deliver a Scots Language workshop to two S1 classes. The event was organised as part of the Scotland IDL Project by the Librarian and the English Department.

Dr Freeman used songs and poems by Scottish poets and songwriters, such as Robert Tannahill, to help the pupils translate words and phrases and help them realise how much of the ancient language we still use today.

The activities were good fun and it was an enjoyable experience with lots of tasks that allowed pupils to work competitively with their peers.
