Today I would like you to listen to or watch another great story about Katie Morag who lives on the Island of Struay. This story is called Katie Morag and the Two Grandmothers by Mairi Hedderwick. It is about her two different grandmas. You can listen to it on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7dp9j2f7io8 or you can watch the episode called Katie Morag and the Two Grandmothers that the BBC made a few years ago on this link: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b03p8644/ceitidh-moragkatie-morag-series-1-2-katie-morag-and-the-two-grandmothers . When you have listen to the story or watched the episode talk to your family about and tell them what you enjoyed about it.
Ask your child if they know when their birthday is? Starting with your child’s age ask them how old they.
• How old will you be when you are 1 year older?
• How old were you last year?
• How old will you be 2/5/10 years from now?
Repeat with the ages of different relatives. You may want to make up your own age
In the stories about Katie Morag that we have been looking at, Katie wears a tartan skirt. Tartan material is looks like a check material. Tartan material originated in woven wool, but now they are made in other materials. Tartan is particularly associated with Scotland but you can get tartan from Ireland. Scottish kilts almost always have tartan patterns. In Scotland, each Scottish family have their own tartan, this is distinguished by their surname. There are over 25,000 registered Scottish tartans. However, Irish Tartans are designed to represent the districts and the counties of Ireland.
Have a look on the internet and see if your surname has its own tartan. If it has, draw a picture of it or design your own.
