Last week I was able to meet with Amy Garrido from Bolton Abbey Education Department. Working on projects for Bolton Abbey Education and school visits I value her opinion about Fergs and the Eco Tykes use within school, home and the environment. Amy has worked as a Primary school teacher and could see the value of the book at school to lead up to project work for many subjects throughout KS2 and KS3. It would be, “great for home school as it provides many project triggers.” The book may be too long for some age groups and individual stories could stand alone. Chapter 22- “Finding the Inner Strength” about bullying is very relevant. Amy is launching new education resources and projects at Bolton Abbey she is also holding a Bolton Abbey event for Teachers at the end of April 2018.
School visits to Bolton Abbey are suitable for both primary and secondary and can be adapted to suit specific curriculum requirements being studied.
Just love finding out stuff. Did you know?
The Nursery rhyme Hey Diddle Diddle. The cat and the Fiddle – Some say originated from Bolton Abbey
. The legend states that Prior Moone was diddled over the sale of a cow by the Hey family, and the dogs either side of the West Tower, built by Prior Moone are laughing. Wow! Do you know any stories about where Nursery rhyme themes originated?
