This morning four of our volunteers visited Leithwalk Primary for a second time are we greeted by an enthusiastic class of P1s raring to learn about archaeology! In addition we were sent our latest testimonial from last week’s visit to Leithwalk from Mr Holden! Check out them all in our “Teacher Testimonials” tab.
“The children were inspired by the session and were all actively engaged in the different stations planned by the archaeologists. At a time when the children are developing tools for writing it was incredible that some of the children could write their name in hieroglyphics. The activities also clearly provided the children with the chance to learn about how different types of evidence can help one find out about the past, a desired experience and outcome from the Curriculum For Excellence, Early Years Level. The volunteers were all very friendly, able to talk to children at a suitable level and clearly passionate about archaeology and I believe this type of hands on experience for the children can only help inspire their learning!”
