School visits for primary schools

School visits for primary schools

Primary school visits to HomePlace are built around hands-on creative learning experiences that are closely connected to Seamus Heaney poetry and the national curriculum.

Take part in an interactive creative writing workshop in which your class will write and perform a collaborative poem. Pupils will be introduced to poetic techniques, then immediately get the chance to use their new skills.

Alternatively, your pupils could take part in a creative activity based on a Seamus Heaney poem. They could make and taste their own butter after reading Churning Day, build and fly a kite based on the poem A Kite For Aibhín, or enjoy a sensory exploration of some delicious homemade snacks inspired by Blackberry-Picking.
