Fit's it a aboot?

2nd December 2005 at 00:00
Actor Joyce Falconer (Roisin in River City) and Patrick Wright (better known as Patrice, hairdresser to the stars) feature with storytellers and others on a DVD which encourages families in Aberdeen to celebrate the local dialect, Doric.

Fit's it a Aboot?, devised by the council's family learning team and partly funded by the Literacies and Numeracies Partnership, includes games such as Doric Call My Bluff, a documentary on the history and use of Doric, plus information on local adult learning opportunities.

Copies will be made available to parents and carers of children due to start at eight schools as part of their P1 induction process.

Kittybrewster, Sunnybank, Donbank, St Machar, Tullos, Walker Road, Bramble Brae and Smithfield primaries have been targeted, as these are priority areas for literacy and numeracy work.
