Making Paper Toys with Lily Rose

Take a Turn!

In Porridge & Play we’ve been talking about Ceilidhs. Ceilidh is a Scottish word – in the Gaelic language – which is mostly used now to describe a Dance – with a Scottish band with maybe fiddle and accordion, where people do Scottish country dancing in big groups.

But Ceilidhs have happened in Scotland for hundreds of years and the word ceilidh really just means a get-together or a party. And at ceilidhs, folk do turns!

Andre’s Turn

In this video Andre and Michael do a Turn where Michael reads a poem he wrote in Scots – inspired by a Robert Burns poem called Tae a Moose! – and Andre dances the story of the poem. 

Lily Rose’s Turn

CFN member Lily Rose has sent us this fantastic video of her Turn where she performs a poem called ‘A Dug, A Dug’ by Bill Keys. It’s written in Scots language… so see if you can guess what a DUG is!

Lots of our Over to You creations are inspired by Cooking with Taz, Making with Iona and Exploring with Jack. Visit their pages to find videos by our actor pedagogues and families in these three activity categories!
