A visit to the Govan Stones exhibition provides an opportunity for all to learn about a moment in history when Govan was the seat of kings, when pilgrims prayed at the tombs of saints, and when Viking warriors plundered and conquered throughout the islands of Britain. 

A range of new and innovative resources has been created to promote and enhance access and engagement for school groups. These materials will help your class to get the most out of a visit to Govan Old Church, and can be used to support history projects in the classroom.

The Govan Stones learning pack is available to all schools visiting Govan Old Church. It has been produced in line with the recommendations of Education Scotland, whose ‘Studying Scotland’ curriculum aims to ‘build confidence in the learning and teaching of Scotland within the curriculum, making it a rewarding and valuable experience for both learner and practitioner’. Its contents are designed for use with learners from pre-school to the end of P7. We have created the resources in the pack for you to copy and use with your class after your visit.
