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.
