Outdoor Gaelic Beginners

Join us for an interactive session exploring Gaelic colours and the outdoors! Pupils will use Gaelic words for colours, answer simple questions and visit some of our RZSS animals in a virtual tour. Your class will get to use our Lorg e cards during the session and these can then be taken in to an outdoor space to do some more exploring!

Age Suitability: P1 - P7 (and Secondary Gaelic beginners!)

Duration of lesson: 1 hour

Maximum Class Size: 33


Session Outline
Before your session, make sure to visit our online resources to download and print the Lorg e cards for your class.
The session begins with an introduction to the Gaelic words for the colours we will use and the simple question “Dè an datha a tha seo?/what colour is this?”. 
We will practice using the questions while visiting some of our zoo animals and then give the pupils a chance to explore wherever they are using the Lorg e cards.
