On Tuesday 8th march 2011 p4\5 held a museum exhibition. It started at 1:30 to 3:00. We held it because our topic was on history. In the morning Bowmore P5\6 came over to look at our museum. We all had had a different table to work at. I was at the information desk with Eilidh. We were selling bookmarks,delft tiles and leaflets. There was a desk that you could go to try old food like Dundee cake,oatcakes with goats cheese and venison and there was viking bread. I had a bit of Dundee cake and it was very nice. We had interactive displays and timelines, toys, bedrooms and kitchens from the past. P6/7 did a World War 2 display as well. A lot of adults came to see our museum. I had a great time.

St Columba came over to Scotland from Ireland in 563 AD to found a monastery on Iona. We have been hearing his life story as recorded in a book written 100 years after his death by another monk Aiden. Working in pairs to create large collages of different points in his life helped us tell his story. We also wrote a story from the life of Columba in the style of an illuminated manusscript like the book of Kells. Here are some of the stories.

Columba and the Loch Ness Monster


One night when Columba and the other monks were travelling over Loch Ness they heard wailing which often meant a death. When they got to the other side there was a funeral was tacking place.
When Columba asked what had happened a young man replied

“My dad was killed by the monster.” Columba cave him a suspicious look. He turned to Luna and said
“Swim over to the other side and get me that boat!”
Luna slipped off his sandals and took off his cloak and plunged into the water. He was about half way across when he saw the monster.
Just as it went for him Columba ran into the water and made the sign of the cross. He forced it to l
eave. The monster never entered the waters again.

Eithnes Story


One night an old man was dying in a monastery and said Eithne, your son will be a great Christian and visit my grave. That night an angel came to visit Eithne with a beautiful cloak full of flowers. The angel said it’s not yours to keep. Eithne was crying because she couldn’t keep the cloak.  Then she gave birth to Columba, who was special.
Eithne gave Columba to the monks for God and so she can go to heaven. She could only visit him1 time a month, but still loved him.

Columba heard some boys outside shouting Colm Cille, churchy Colm. Columba got really angry and chased them down to the river.  But he grew up to be a very famous Christian.
