Over the last week I have been running activities all over Edinburgh. Yesterday I went out with the Museums Alive volunteers for the last session of a three week block at Marionville Court Care Home. We ran a reminiscence session exploring holidays and travel. We then created this map showing places that the residents had visited.
I have also visited two schools. At Currie Primary I spoke to the P2 class about toys in the past and at East Craigs Primary I ran sessions for the two P5 classes on Victorian games. If you work in a school and would like to find out more about borrowing our loan boxes or arranging a visit, do visit our website or get in touch to find out more.
But, the week doesn’t end there! This afternoon I am going out to Forthland Lodge Care Home to run a reminiscence session with the residents.
Tomorrow you can catch me as a speaker at the ‘Your Future in the Past’ Careers fair. If you are interested in coming along, you can find out more on the poster below.
