St Brigid's Day at St Brigid's

We made St Brigid's crosses for St Brigid's Day- the patron saint of our school.

Here is the Prayer to St Brigid, which we say regularly at our school:

From all sin and harm, from all danger and woe,
Guard me St Brigid whereever I go.
Oh Brigid be with me until the road's end
And help me to walk through that gate as God's friend
Amen





Oral Language Presentations on FOOD

Each child had to present a simple recipe to the class. Some kind children brought us in samples of their recipe: Mia brought us in hot chocolate; Grace brought us in Rocky Road and Benas brought us in a red velvet and fresh fruit gateaux. Mmmmm.... thanks so much!

Oral Language Presentations on Our Families

We had an entertaining afternoon on Friday, listening to all the stories about our families. Some people told funny stories about themselves and their families. Others did a presentation all about their families. Here's a snapshot of James's impressive presentation:


Something Fishy

The Irish Fisheries Board came to our school and gave us a very interesting talk about the fish in the lakes and rivers of Ireland. We also got to have a close-up look at some of the creatures who live in our waterways.

We have been learning about trees in Science.

Find out what trees are growing in your garden at home. Are they native trees?

Here is the trunk of a large tree which was felled in the teachers' car park today. Mrs Prior is running a competition to find out how old the tree is. Can you count the rings? Leave a comment here wiht your answer.
