An Eye on the Hebrides: An illustrated journey (Canongate 1989 / Birlinn 2009), a six-month-long odyssey through the Hebrides, visiting forty different islands from Arran to Lewis. [14] The book is set on a fictional island called the Isle of Struay so children can actually use their map skills and locate the island on a map. This makes it more real for them to work and develop their learning. The book has a map at the beginning of the book which shows where the different places in the Isle of Struay is. It also uses a lot of illustrations which is really good as children can see and understand all about the island.

A stage adaption was created by Lisa Grindall for Mull Theatre in 2005, based on characters and setting from the books, with a new story and songs. After a successful tour of smaller venues in Argyll and the Highlands followed by a week at the Citizens Theatre in Glasgow in 2005, [26] [27] [28] [29] the production was revived as a Christmas show at the Byre Theatre in St Andrews in 2007, [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] and toured again in 2008. [35] [36] [37] Alexandria Patience, Artistic Evaluation: Katie Morag at Ardross Hall, Scottish Arts Council, 5 October 2005 Based on the fictional Island of Struay, the Katie Morag books are a fun way for pupils to get acquainted with island life in Scotland. There are loads of adventures and characters to enjoy. She has also written several books of travel writing for adults, and is the illustrator of a range of Hebridean stationery. This Katie Morag book allows for children aged between 6 and 9 to engage fantastically with geography and also relationships. The book is set on the fictional Isle of Strauy, based on the Scottish Western Isle's. The illustration within the book can get children, especially those without much travel experience, to experience vocabulary that would otherwise be difficult to relate to.This fantastic activity will challenge learners to think about different places you can live by comparing island and mainland life. Made to support teaching on Katie Morag, this resource is great for use alongside learning about and reading these beloved Scottish children’s book series.

While you’re teaching this topic, you can use these colourful display posters to decorate your classroom. They feature key characters and settings such as Liam, Grannie, the Redburn Bridge, and the Post Office. Pupils in secondary school have to fly to Oban on Sunday and live in a hostel for the week to go to school. With these, your learners will be able to reflect on what they have just read. Doing so will allow them to remember the story better, as well as developing an ability to take away key events from a long piece of text. For more resources about Coll, pair this resource with our differentiated reading activity to build key literacy skills like skimming and scanning. Another fun idea would be to encourage the use of online resources or library books to fill out this research worksheet, which can be done independently or in groups.

Jaine Lumsden, Artistic Evaluation: Katie Morag at the Citizens, Scottish Arts Council, 20 October 2005 At Twinkl, we firmly understand the impotence of developing literacy skills at an early age! Reading is something that is required every day, and getting comfortable with it from an early age is a great help. Using our Book Review Sheet will be a great start for First Level learners before they do some more complex differentiated reading comprehension resources in the future. In England a short National Curriculum Key Stage 1 Geography unit for six- and seven-year-olds, called "An island home", has been linked to the series and in particular the book Katie Morag and the Two Grandmothers. [10] The book Katie Morag and the New Pier has also been used as a peg to discuss how communities can gain and lose from change. [11] The most recent book in the series, Katie Morag and the Dancing Class, was a nominee for the Kate Greenaway Medal in 2008, [12] which is awarded for an outstanding work of illustration in children's literature.
