P3S – Old Edinburgh

Welcome to P3S. We like to work hard and concentrate. We like it to be quiet when we are working. We love practising our maths skills using Sumdog on the laptops and the iPads. We love reading because it makes us smarter and helps our brains grow! We like doing work in pairs and have fun helping each other.

We have really enjoyed learning about Old Edinburgh for our Topic. We learned about what the Old Town was like in the 1600’s.


We printed our own Old Town Tenement Houses.

The houses were very close to each other and since they didn’t have toilets, the used buckets and shouted “Gardy Loo!” when they threw their waste out of the window. Did you know that there is an extinct volcano under the castle?


We had lots of fun making Plague Doctor masks.

We also found out about the Plague Doctors who went house to house helping people who were ill. They had scary masks but they were filled with herbs and flowers to ward off the plague smells. We had great fun making and performing a play called “A Visit from the Plague Doctor”
