"P5 travelled back in time to the late 13th century, where they relived the life and times of the Scottish Wars of Independence. Thank you to Kathryn from History Alive in Schools for an awe inspiring presentation, not missing out any gory parts!
Learners enjoyed dressing up as knights and foot soldiers and handling the armour and real weapons!" Kilmaurs Primary School

"The boys and girls had a fantastic time this morning. Thank you very much for your superb presentation. The learners were fully engaged from beginning to end. Your love and enthusiasm for history has definitely been passed on to them. They were raving about it at lunch time!"  Kilmaurs Primary School

"We had a super morning learning all about WW2. Thank you so much for coming in and for being so engaging, you really captivated the kids (and staff!). The fact the children could handle and try all the fantastic bits and pieces was a huge bonus. Thank you......and we look forward to having you back at Kingcase."  Kingcase Primary School

"Primary 4 had a brilliant day last week learning about Vikings with Kathryn.  We loved listening to all her facts and had so much fun trying on costumes, battling each other and trying out traditional Viking ways of life." Kilmaurs Primary School

"I can honestly say we all (including me) had the best morning with you. The kids are so excited about our topic and have had such an exciting day. Your talk was fun and informative and pitched perfectly. I cannot recommend you highly enough, I'm just gutted I'm not doing it all again tomorrow. Thank you so much again." Kilmaurs Primary School

"We loved the way you let us try on the clothes and evacuation outfits and let us handle the examples. It was as if we were actually back in the war time with the music and voice clips and even the bombing sounds, they were freaky ........We learned a lot, even small things like what a gas mask smells like. Thank you very much and it has made us a lot more interested and enthusiastic about the whole project you have made learning fun. We would recommend you to any one at any time!!" P7 Pupils, Glenluce Primary School, Dumfries & Galloway 

"Thank you for a very informative talk, for being such a good sport and for the fun we all had trying on the costumes, making the kilt and holding the weapons. History did indeed come Alive!"  P6 Woodlands PS, Irvine

"Just to let you know how wonderful the presentation for children that you presented as part of the Knights & Castles exhibit was. My 4 year old nephew attended a lecture/demonstation of castles and armour with Sir Katherine. The information was clear, interesting and she was so approachable and open to the children. Our whole family enjoyed her talk, the chance to try on armour and the entire exhibit. With many thanks!!" Visitor to the Burrell Collection, Glasgow, 2002

"The pupils obviously enjoyed the show and several parents mentioned how popular it had been when they came to parents evening. They were also amazed at how much the pupils remembered about the information they heard!" Class Teacher, Heathfield Primary School, Ayr

"I really like learning about the Romans. I thought it was cool holding the real Roman coin. Our teacher learned a lot too. We all loved it." P4 Pupil, Rephad Primary School, Stranraer

"Thankyou for letting us try on the clothes and for letting us hold the jewellery, swords, shield and spear. That was my favourite part because you got to try on the clothes and things. I learned quite a lot about the Vikings and I really enjoyed it." P5, Noblehill Primary School, Dumfries

"Thank you for the amazing talk. I really enjoyed it ... being an archaeologist was mega!"  P4, Rephad Primary School, Stranraer
