Learning at Home
Learning at home can be fun and we have a great learning project ‘Living in ancient Scotland’ which is specifically aimed at children of primary school age. Helping to build their knowledge and understanding of the ancient past, the project has lots of activities for children to complete and a story to inspire. So, make your way to the ‘Learning’ section and you will find the ‘Learning at home’ page.
Don’t forget to share your activity results and creations.
