Let’s find out more about Burns’ life, and the poetry that made him so famous!
“Two young children, bored of sightseeing, happen upon the famous drinking fountain statue, then search out the nearby churchyard where they hear Bobby’s story. It’s simply and tenderly told by a gardener in the churchyard where Bobby watched over his master’s grave for 14 years”
Perhaps you already know the story of Greyfriars Bobby, or perhaps it’s completely new to you. Either way, your pupils can bring this wonderful true story to life through creative expression and drama!
Greyfriars Bobby, a wee Skye terrier, belonged to an Edinburgh policeman more than 150 years ago and was as loyal in death as in life to his caring master. He was so famous, it’s said that Queen Victoria herself paid him a special visit! A special dog indeed, but as with so many incredible stories, there is so much left to tell …
Alongside our professional theatre facilitator, the children will use creative workshop techniques to create the action and build the story together. This is a wonderful yet simple story that allows copious amounts of room for written work and further development in the classroom.
