How should I prepare my group/class for this workshop?

Our Magic Carpet can seat up to 15 children, plus adults. Everyone taking part, including adults, will need to take off their shoes. If your group is larger than 15, please get in touch with us to discuss on schoolsnmorl@nms.ac.uk.

What will my pupils do in the workshop?

North Wind and Sun

Learn all about the seasons through this fun adaptation of an Aesop’s fable. The North wind blows the villagers' hats from their heads and the farmyard animals are shaking with fear but it’s the sun’s warmth and gentleness that proves to be far more powerful than the wind.

All the Colours of the Day

Meet a curious owl who decides to stay awake during the day. He can’t believe the beautiful colours all around him, throughout day and into night.

Scots Farming

Whit’s a dug, coo or yowe? Meet a Tattie Bogle and learn all about the Scots words we use on the farm through stories, songs and rhymes.
