Children of the Northern Star

Yesterday Primary 3 had an exciting visit to the National Museum of Scotland for a time travelling adventure back to Viking times, 1200 years ago. Their Viking day out began in the theatre where they learned about Viking life in the Orkney Isles. Next they were able to look around the galleries, study a Viking grave and try on some clothing.

Next they moved on the a handling session where each child was able to explore different Viking artefacts. The children really impressed Miss McGregor with all their knowledge, thoughful questions and ideas about some of the interesting pieces.

Finally, after lunch, there was time to investigate some of the other galleries in the museum before heading back to school. Can you spot which one of us was wearing an astronaut suit and who is driving the race car?
