s1 History trip

 On Monday 25 January, S1 pupils from Kirkintilloch High School had the opportunity to immerse themselves in medieval history at the Battle of Bannockburn Visitor Centre in Stirling.  The centre allowed pupils to develop their understanding of battle tactics and witness them in action in 3D before putting their new knowledge into practice on an interactive battlefield. This was a highly engaging activity which encouraged teamwork and co-operation in order to survive. The pupils also had the opportunity to view replica weapons and try on armour which gave the pupils a deeper understanding of the experiences of Scottish soldiers dressed for battle.

 The modern site brought pupil learning to life in a very enjoyable manner. Fun was had by all.
