Scots Sangs Fur Schools

Traditional and new Scots songs and tunes for use in Scottish primary schools

SANGS FUR STUDENT AND TEACHER

Hiya! Welcome. 

My name is Ewan McVicar. I made this site for Primary schools and students at home.


A few favourite traditional Scots songs for you to try first are Fitba CrazyCoulter's Candy and Canny Shove Yer Grannie. For newer songs try Bananas Are The Best and Coorie Doon.




ABOUT PROBLEMS PLAYING THE RECORDINGS

If recordings will not play while you are using Chrome, try using Internet Explorer. Or if there is on your top line address another symbol - like a bent letter 't' - just to the left of the star symbol on the far right, click on that symbol and 'Run all plug-ins'. Though that may only work for each page, sad to tell!

This website has been developed to assist Scottish Primary school teachers and pupils find the Scots songs they need for project and thematic work. For P1-3 and Nursery, please select For Small People. Pupils themselves can select songs or tunes, and there is information on lyrics and accompanying movements for use by teachers. 

For P4 and up, there are songs and tunes with lyrics and information, there are resources for teachersOn the right are podcasts of favourite songs you can download and use.

There is a Glossary of Scots words here
