In the Autumn term
In the Frame with the Jacobites
The scene is set. Who are the people in the light and shadows and what do their attitudes and actions say about this complicated time in history? Working with an experienced Drama teacher, pupils will be encouraged to explore and consider what’s really going on in the frame.
“Quick e-mail to say how good the workshop at the gallery was. Could you pass on my regards to Marjorie who made the trip exciting and enjoyable for the children. Thanks again”

Who Killed Darnley?
Working with Scottish author, Allan Burnett, pupils will explore the Reformation to Revolution gallery to find out more about this complicated time in Scottish history. The back-stabbing, the intrigue and the general unpleasantness will be the focus of this session through role play, creative writing and heated debate.
2.5hrs (£65) (max 20 pupils)
