Dalmeny Primary Museum

Last week I spent a lot of time out at Dalmeny Primary School. I worked with the P5/6 and P7 class to help them to develop an exhibition. Their topics were toys and games and World War II.


Both classes took part in sessions to choose the objects they wanted to display and to write labels for the objects. I then went back later in the week to set up the exhibition with the children and to help the children to show visitors around their museum.


I’m also going back today to speak to the school assembly. Then tomorrow the full exhibition is coming down, so a smaller version can go on display in South Queensferry Library. So if you haven’t had a chance to catch it yet, do nip down to the library for a look.
