Pass it On! (Commonwealth Games)

Hey, Pass it On: Commonwealth Games!  

Athletes from 71 countries and territories are coming in from all over the world to compete at the ‘friendly games’. Forget about the Olympics – this is where it’s at and we’re going for gold. Apparently the Queen has sent a personal message – but it’s going the long way around. Maybe it will answer a few questions like what’s a Commonwealth? What does ‘legacy’ mean?... and who or what is a Tristan Da Cunha?!

A Play in a Day for up to 30 KS2 / P4-7 pupils.

Flower of Scotland

One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter.

First it was Romans. Then Vikings. After that it was the English... Edward I, II and III all had their hands full dealing with their neighbours north of the border. From the religious conflict between Mary Queen of Scots and the not-so-good Queen Bess, to the Jacobite rebellion and the legend of Bonnie Prince Charlie; it's a real roller-coaster ride for anyone trying to run the country they call Scotland... especially if your name happens to be James!
