Our first school visit

On Thursday the Special Collections Centre hosted its first school visit to the new Learning Room!

As part of their class project on the Jacobites, P5/6 from Milltimber Primary School came to the University Library to investigate how the Jacobites used symbolism to express their identity.  The pupils visited the current Jacobites exhibition and searched for Jacobite emblems.  They then took a look at one of our archive images and had a go at making their own cockades.   Keep a look out for our how-to on making a white cockade, coming up soon.

We were so busy we didn’t get a chance to take any pictures, but hopefully we’ll get some up soon after our next school visit.  In the meantime, here are some pictures of our Learning Room and the children’s comments on their visit.

If you would like to bring your class to do a Jacobites workshop, email us at scc.learning@abdn.ac.uk.
