Dunkeld and Birnam for Kids by Kids Publications

Ali Hammerton and I were in Dunkeld for a meeting earlier in this week at the Birnam Institute. On our way out of the building we spotted these brilliant booklets published by P7 pupils at the Royal School of Dunkeld. They are the result of some detailed research and inquiry into the local area and provide helpful maps, reviews and information for visiting children. These resourceful P7s have been able to put their communication and artistic skills to work to let other children know about the best places to visit, to eat and to find out more about local history. We were really impressed with their work (and lucky enough to be able to purchase several copies) and it was lovely to see how getting out and about in the outdoors can provide a real and relevant context for developing skills in literacy.
