Scots - Young poets Burns brightly
Brilliant bairns have become Burnsian bards in South Ayrshire, where hundreds of pupils have written poems to celebrate the opening of the new Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Alloway.
Competition judges Matthew Fitt, of Scots publishing company Itchy Coo, and Nat Edwards, director of the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum, challenged pupils to write a poem for Robert Burns and be crowned Scots poetry champion.
Using Glow technology, pupils from Alloway and Kincaidston primaries filmed a Scots language poetry workshop with Matthew Fitt, which was then made available to all primary pupils and teachers in the region.
The winners were Lewis Doak and Beth Murdoch from Alloway Primary.
The first major museum to open in Scotland since 2007, the National Trust for Scotland's Robert Burns Birthplace Museum will house the most significant Burns collection of its kind, including 5,000 historic artefacts, manuscripts and memorabilia of the bard.
