Recently, the children found 2 eggs in the nursery. We all talked about what might be inside, and waited patiently…
When we came back after the weekend, we found 2 little baby dinosaurs, and we planned what we would like to find out about them.
We found out information using books and the internet. We measured bones, and sticks, and dinosaur feet!
We created stories, and art work all about what we had learned.
The National Museum of Flight is offering parents and carers the chance to become storytellers. Storytelling is not just about reading fairy stories, storytelling skills are a huge advantage in all our communications; at home, in the workplace and in our social interactions.
Over 20 weekly sessions participants will hear stories and learn how to tell traditional tales, stories from real life, brand new stories and their own personal stories. Sessions will include regular craft activities and games for the children attending.
The comprehensive training will give participants skills they can apply in everyday life and work.
The fun and educational course, led by professional storytellers John and Noreen Hamilton, will give unique access to a wide range of video and audio material through the projects own private Facebook page.
The sessions will be held at the National Museum of Flight, East Fortune near Haddington, and will provide a chance to see the museum’s collections and access unique stories from some of those who have been part of Scotland’s flying traditions.
The project will end with an event where the new storytellers can share their skills with friends and family.

On Monday we were visited by two special knights. They came from Dirleton Castle. We asked them lots of good questions and they told us lot of facts about castles and even let us see their weapons and armour.
We continued to learn new skills in basketball. We also learnt about the five positions on a basketball team. They are point guard, power forward, small forward, shooting guard and a center.
We are all really looking forward to our visit to Edinburgh Castle.
