Culloden Battlefield trip
On Thursday P5 and P5/6 were lucky enough to visit Culloden Battlefield as part of our Jacobites topic. We went inside the classroom and were all given a lanyard. Some of us were asked to dress up as famous people from the time of the Jacobite rebellion. After that, we went outside to see the real battlefield. We got to see where the soldiers stood and even where some soldiers were buried. After lunch we were back in the classroom to look at artefacts that would have belonged to the people we had studied earlier in the day. Lastly, we went around the museum. We saw some of Bonnie Prince Charlie’s personal belongings like his dress sword and waistcoat (it even had his sweat stains on it).
We had an amazing time and are looking forward to sharing more of our experience at our creative café later on this month!
*Fun Fact- Bonnie Prince Charlie’s full name was Charles Edward Louis John Casimir Sylvester Severino Maria Stuart.
