Holy Family Primary - Storytelling Workshop
The Regal Storytellers visited Holy Family Primary school in Kirkintilloch and entertained and educated Primary 5 with a 2-hour storytelling and craft workshop.
The King told a story from 'The Further Adventures of Wee Robert Bruce' which included audience participation with the children. This was followed by a Question and Answer Session as the year group was completing a topic: Bruce, Wallace and the Wars of Independence. After a short break, the children then carried out an activity which we had prepared - the creation of their own family shield design. The King and Queen talked to the children about the origins of heraldry and what different designs meant. They then helped them create their own designs.
The feedback from the children and class teacher was very positive and our presentation in costume made it a very memorable experience for the children.
