Twinkl Resources

To help teachers and young people engage with Seachdain na Gàidhlig, we have collated a comprehensive selection of resources in partnership with educational publishers, Twinkl Alba. The activities and resources include teacher planners, suggested content and activities aimed at both primary and secondary levels for both Gàidhlig medium and Gaelic Learners – ensuring that all children and teachers can get involved, whether they are fluent or just starting their journey with the language.

We would love you to join us for our most ambitious Seachdain na Gàidhlig yet, and celebrate the richness and vibrancy that Scottish Gaelic brings to life in Scotland and beyond.

We will be running free, daily online workshops for school children of all ages, tailored to both English Medium Education (EME) and Gaelic Medium Education (GME) schools, throughout Seachdain na Gàidhlig | World Gaelic Week from 19th – 25th February 2024.

Each daily session will last approximately 30 minutes, and will be hosted and facilitated by fluent Gaelic speaker, singer and presenter Joy Dunlop, and will include:

  • A mix games and songs
  • A short story with current Gaelic Ambassador of the Year, Linda Macleod
  • Special guest appearances from renowned Gaelic speakers who are using Gaelic in their everyday lives, inspired by this year’s theme of Your Language, Your opportunity.
