CHILDREN at a Wee County school last week benefited from a unique learning experience with Poppy Scotland.

Five classes from Craigbank Primary got the chance to engage with the interactive experience provided by the Poppy Scotland Bud Truck.

The truck travels around the country to share archives, veteran's stories and the poppy heritage in a bid to create conversations and challenge assumptions.

The experience enabled the young people to begin the Remembrance journey.

Pupils will have gained a lot from the event as they heard from outreach staff before asking questions and later exploring the exhibits themselves.

Interactive lessons were aimed at facilitating conversations about the poppy, heritage and the significance of Remembrance.

One display showcase a range of poppies from around the world and children also got to make their very own.

The school said the children very much enjoyed the experience and outreach staff on the truck were also impressed by their enthusiasm.

Craigbank was lucky to secure a visit from the Bud Truck as it is understood to be in high in demand; nevertheless there are hopes to bring the experience back to Sauchie in the coming years.

Thanks go to Poppy Scotland and its funders for the experience and class teacher Rebecca Russell for organising the day.
