On Monday P6/7 went to The National Library of Scotland with Mrs Ritchie. We did three activities. The first activity was Storytelling, we listened to Tam O’ Shanter and Bonnie Prince Charlie. The second activity was a tour of the library. You enter the library on the 11th floor, there are 15 floors in total and we went down as far as the fifth floor. There are over 17 million books in the library, no two the same! The third activity was a quiz on Scottish history.
There is an anonymous woman who makes sculptures out of Scottish books, she leaves them in some of her favourite places, libraries and museums.
We enjoyed the tour and learning all the facts.
