Lá Fhéile Bríde

Many thanks to our volunteers who helped out on Wednesday afternoon with our St. Brigid cross making. We had lots of fun and it is always lovely to have grandparents visit our classroom.

Feast Day 1st February

Poem about the conversion of Gaelic Chieftan from paganism to Christianity
9
Brigid wove a cross of rushes by a dying chieftain’s bed”
“Brigid what is that you’re making
From the rushes there?”, he said.
Brigid said,”A cross I’m weaving, like the cross where Jesus died.”
“Who was Jesus?” asked the chieftain,
“Why was this man crucified?”
Brigid told the gospel story to a dying pagan King.
Lying silently he listened,
Never saying anything.
Then he kissed the cross of rushes
Saying ,”Brigid, thanks to you,
I have come to love this Jesus,
I will follow his way too!”

CARA NUA

Bhí an-spórt againn inniú, ag súgradh leis an sneachta. Thóg cúpla páistí fear sneachta beag sa pháirc.Níor aontaíonn siad ar an tainm. Rinne siad job maith áfach! Cad a cheapann sibh?

An Fear Sneachta
Is fear sneachta mise,
Ní féidir liom siúl
Ba mhaith liom bheith ag imirt peile
Ach níl aon chosa fúm

Is fear sneachta mise
Tá mé breá fuar
Tá súile beaga dubha agam
Agus dath ar nós plúr

Is fear sneachta mise
Is breá liom na páistí
Ach ní maith liom é
Nuair a bhíonn sé ag cur báistí

Inne chuaigh ár rang sios go dtí an trá chun rang ealaine a bheith againn.

 

Bhí buicead agus spaid ag gach duine. Bhí hatai agus uacthar gréine ag go leor duine mar bhí an aimsir te.

 

Rinne gach duine structure déanta as gainimh. Rinne daoine tithe agus linn snamha agus daoine.

 

Bhí me fein agus Kirsty i mo ghrúpa.

 

Bhí go leor lochan carraige beaga ag an trá.

 

Rinne me fein agus Kirsty cailin.
Is maith liom ag dul go dti an trá.

Construction challenge (Step 3)

  1. Lots of fun was had as the children in the junior room worked in their teams to try to win the lollipop stick construction challenge. Each group had to build the tallest construction possible, that was stable enough to stand for at least 10 seconds using a maximum of 20 pegs and 20 lollipop sticks. There were wonderful ideas presented and great team work evident all round!
