A Guided Tour of Dirleton Castle by Our P6/7 Class

This guided tour of Dirleton Castle, East Lothian, by Ms Cooper and Dirleton Primary School’s P6/7 class represents the finale of a term-long learning project during which the class have used the context of the castle and its history to create an engaging, highly relevant source of learning opportunities. This epitomises the ethos of Scotland’s “Curriculum for Excellence”, in particular its encouragement of active learning http://www.educationscotland.gov.uk/learningandteaching/approaches/activelearning/about/what.asp.

Thanks are due to Historic Scotland and the Dirleton Castle staff for their support with the project.
