As part of the Mud to the Stars project, we've put together a number of tasks and resources designed to be used by school groups to help young people explore the last 100 years of the RAF.
You can use these resources in any way you wish. If you’re a teacher or youth arts worker, your students can learn the songs from the backing tracks provided, or even write their own ones; they can have a go at writing the next scene of a play or create a piece of art-work featuring 100 years of aviation design.
Most of the activities are suitable for primaries 5–7 (level 2) and some for pupils in Secondary 1 or 2. All Curriculum for Excellence Outcomes and Experiences are clearly marked within the introduction to each task.
