NEW materials have been created to help primary schools deliver lessons looking at Ulster Scots language, culture and heritage.

Ulster-Scots for Primary School: Shared Language, Culture and Heritage has been created by the Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) in collaboration with the Ulster Scots Agency.

The resources aim to provide primary school teachers with support materials to help them introduce aspects of Ulster Scots into the classroom. The idea is that they can be used as a starting point for teachers who wish to develop further learning opportunities.

CCEA said it was a valuable addition to its wide range of resources.
