This week in EP6-7 we have been learning about Bar and Bat Mitzvahs. We learnt that the boy has his Bar Mitzvah at age thirteen and a girl has her Bat Mitzvah age twelve. In the Jewish faith they speak Hebrew and Bar Mitzvah means ‘son of the commandments’ while Bat Mitzvah means ‘daughter of the commandments’. When Jewish children have a Bar or Bat Mitzvah they have a big party, get lots of presents and they read from the Torah – which is the Old Testament. They also make speeches to their parents and families saying thank you for bring them up. Bar or Bat Mitzvah is a celebration of them becoming adults.
On Monday the 14th we all came back from the Easter holidays. We were asked to choose any article from a newspaper. We cut it out and stuck it into our reading jotters and we then had to write a summary of what it was about. This is so that we can work on our reading skills for use in our literacy circles. We also did some Alta maths which we did online on the computers in the ICT room.
On Wednesday the 16th James’s grandfather, Jock Murray, came in to talk to us. We had all been working on personal talks on a subject of our choice. James had chosen to speak about his granddad and invited him in so we could ask him some questions. He has lived a really interesting life and it was good to get a chance to speak to him.
We would like to thank all the parents and grandparents who attended our Pupil Led Open Afternoon on Wednesday 26th March. We really enjoyed sharing our learning with you all and we hope you enjoyed all the baking that you bought. We raised an amazing £150!!
We will be holding a special Easter assembly on Friday 18th April in conjunction with Rev. CI Macleod and Back Free Church. The assembly will be held in the church, starting at 10.00am.
We would like to extend an invitation to all parents and families to join us for this assembly. A return slip is included in the letter to parents attached below. We would be grateful if the slip could be returned by Thursday 17th April so we can ascertain expected numbers.
A revised timetable for all services to and from Sgoil a’ Bhac is attached below.
The summer term is upon us!
Welcome back everyone. We hope you all had a refreshing break and are ready for the start of the new term.
We will be confirming dates later this week for events taking place this term. They will be published on our website and circulated to parents when completed.
