A reminder to P3 children’s parents that there is a P3 mass in St Mary Magdalene’s on Sunday 25th November at 11.15 am. This mass will include the Rite of the Cross, where the children will be blessed and receive their crosses. We hope to see you there.
P.4 did a topic about Houses and Homes. First we learned about different types of homes like a flat or terraced. My house is a terraced house.
Then we found out about castles. I learned that the first type of castles are motte and bailey castles and they were built by the Normans.
Next we learned about crofts and crannogs. I learned that a croft is not a house but a piece of land and the people who lived on the croft were called crofters.
We went on a trip to Edinburgh Castle and I liked seeing the prisons of war and Mons Meg the biggest canon in Scotland.
What I enjoyed about this topic was probably the trip to Edinburgh Castle.

This week in PE we played football on the Astroturf. Everyone was cheering each other on and everyone was having fun. We also did more meditation which was relaxing, quiet and calm. Most people enjoyed it and some people fell asleep!
We learnt about the Beatitudes and up our own, one for each class. P5a’s was “blessed are those who love and care for people on the street, for they will be loved and cared for by God”, and P5b’s was “blessed are those who are positive in attitude, for they will be shown positivity and kindness in return”.
We also learnt about Anti-Bullying week. We did a picture of a good friend hand where we wrote what mades a good friend.
We learnt about how medieval houses were made, with wattle and daub. Everyone laughed because the daub was made of manure! We also wrote a diary entry as if we were medieval peasants, which we enjoyed.
