Seeing History in Action
Year 4 recently visited the Al Jasra Handicraft Centre as part of their project on “Traditional Crafts of Bahrain”. A really worthwhile day for all concerned, with the students enjoying an invaluable first hand insight into the construction of traditional Bahraini crafts. The children spent the morning observing different traditional craft techniques in action and also got the chance to ask the different craftsmen questions about their particular skills and techniques. This all bodes well for their service craft day later in the term when they will get a chance to make some of these products for themselves.
